Ethical & Social Audits
In our endeavor to strengthen our position as a company within the area of sustainability, social responsibility and environmental protection, we undergo ethical & social audits on a regular basis.
Independent institutes conduct these and asses on the basis of the following criteria:
- Base Code of Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI)
- Country-specific laws and regulations
- Regulations for Health and Safety at the workplace
- Environmental Protection requirements
During the audits which last several days, an auditor conducts several individual and group interviews with employees from Quality Assurance, Occupational Health & Safety, Environmental Management and Production. In addition to a tour of the production facilities, it ensures the compliance with the guidelines specified above.
