BSCI stands for “Business Social Compliance Initiative” and is an industry-driven platform for the improvement of the social standards in a worldwide value chain. The BSCI offers commercial enterprises a systematic monitoring and qualification system that enables the improvement of the working conditions of people.
In terms of contents, the codex is based on international agreements (ILO, International Labor Organization) on the protection of the rights of employees.
The focus here is on the following key elements:
- Management practices
- Working hours
- Child labour
- Forced labour (including prison work and coercive measures)
- Freedom of assembly (including freedom of organisation and pricing freedom)
- Discrimination (sex, race, religion)
- Working conditions
- Health and social services
- Health and safety at work (work safety)
- Aspects of environmental protection
By means of BSCI membership, commercial enterprises want to prove that upstream suppliers (also in developing and emerging countries) and the commercial enterprise itself observe and respect social and ethical standards.
Independent certification organisations carry out audits to check whether the self-imposed compliance with the BSCI standards (that is also frequently demanded by the customers) is fulfilled.
Fair trade is considered to be controlled trade, according to which the producers are paid a minimum price for the traded products that is usually laid down by fair trade organisations.
This aim is enable the producers to earn a higher and more reliable income than is the case in the scope of conventional trade even if the market prices are low. The value of a fair price is a business ethics topic that has been discussed for centuries. In addition to this, one strives to build long-term, “partnership-like” relations between the distributors and the producers. Furthermore, the production is subject to international and environmental and social standards stipulated by the organisations, which have to be complied with.
Since our production sites are Fairtrade-certified, we are able to offer this standard.
GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard and it is the leading standard worldwide for the processing of textiles out of organic natural fibres. GOTS defines environmental requirements and social criteria that have to be complied with across the entire production chain in the textile sector.
We are glad to be able to offer this standard, which our production sites comply with.
REACH is the abbreviation for the EU regulation for the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals.
