Social responsibility as a contracting authority
Respect for each individual as well as for the law and cultures of other countries where the Popken Fashion Group is operating is a compulsory aspect of the corporation. Equally, the Popken Fashion Group ensures that social standards are observed all along the production chain and takes its responsibility seriously to provide products that are produced in a socially responsible way.
As a member of the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), the Popken Fashion Group aims to improve social responsible processes at production centres around the world in a sustainable way. The BSCI is a business initiative for companies which are committed to improving working conditions across the international supply chain. The initiative unites and supports hundreds of companies as they strive to develop ethical supply chains by providing a single code of conduct, a uniform monitoring system and training.
The BSCI code of conduct is based on the conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) as well as on important provisions given by the United Nations. As a member of the BSCI, the Popken Fashion Group is obliged to introduce, monitor and improve social standards across the global supply chain.
