As members of the ‘BSCI/Business Social Compliance Initiative’ we commit ourselves
to implementing the BSCI code of conduct as part of our business relations with our
manufacturers and thus to improving the working conditions within our supply chain and
to producing our textiles fairly. This includes our clear commitment to the empoyees’ right
to freedom of assembly, protection against discrimination, and an adequate remuneration,
that is, at least the statutory national minimum wage. Another central component is the
occupational safety regulations. That is howwe guarantee that employees do not work more
than 48 hours a week and that the occupational safety regulations of the ILO (International
Labour Organisation) are met. Child labour, forced labour or precarious jobs are not tolerated.
A 7-member Social Compliance Department in Shanghai and Dhaka tests all the
factories thoroughly and makes sure that these conditions are met.http://www.bsci-intl.org/
