Ethical and responsible business policy
Our company believes that we must not only meet but also exceed the expectations of our customers and consumers. We have therefore adopted guidelines that ensure the safety, quality and integrity of our products and business processes and we are committed to respecting the rights of individuals and the environment. We are committed to comply with all (local) laws and regulations and to conduct business in an ethical and professional manner.
Law & Regulations
We are committed to comply with all (local and national) laws and regulations that apply to our industry, especially those relating to product safety and the environment. We will comply with all voluntary standards that our industry applies to products and business processes.
No child labour
We do not tolerate child labour. We will comply with all minimum age requirements.
No forced labour
We do not tolerate any form of forced labour, which involves physical and/or mental abuse or any other form of physical and/or mental punishment.
We will provide a safe and healthy working environment. We will comply with all applicable (local) laws and regulations concerning health and safety in the workplace.
Freedom of association
We recognise and respect the freedom of our employees to associate and join a trade union. If employees are represented by an organisation recognised by local law, we respect their freedom to bargain collectively.
No exploitation, discrimination and/or harassment
Under no circumstances do we tolerate the exploitation of (vulnerable) individuals or groups, any form of discrimination and/or intimidation.
We strive to comply with all applicable laws and regulations concerning salaries, working hours, hiring policies, fringe benefits and overtime.
The essence of these provisions should be followed in the absence of unambiguous local laws and regulations regarding product safety, the environment, labour and working conditions.
Subcontractors and suppliers
The Code of Conduct is an integral part of our daily business processes and we will do whatever is necessary to achieve these policy objectives. We will only do business with partners who are like-minded and respect ethical, professional and responsible business conduct. All partners must comply with all applicable laws and regulations and we will inform them of our code of conduct. We expect our business partners to organise their business processes in such a way that we can comply with our policy.
