3. RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION
Great design must be married with quality production. We work with suppliers we’ve known for more than 25 years with whom we grow together as business partners. Through our Code of Conduct and audits we ensure that all suppliers live up to our values and that our products are made under responsible conditions.
As a global design brand with producers in more than 10 countries we take pride in our relationships and expect our suppliers to share our values. True quality is achieved only when products are made under responsible conditions; not harming people or the planet.
Our Global Supply Chain
We endorse transparency when it comes to our production and we encourage everyone to start thinking more about where their products are made, what they are made of and not least under what circumstances. That’s why we’ve taken the first step towards a more transparent supply chain highlighting all the countries we are producing in, and what materials they mainly process there. Take a look at our Supplier Map below:
CODE OF CONDUCT
To ensure our suppliers understand and live up to our values we require them to sign our Code of Conduct. This agreement draws on the UN Global Compact and amfori BSCI’s Code of Conduct and sets out standards that our suppliers and their employees and sub-suppliers must meet. Read more below.
Our suppliers and local advisers are audited every three years to ensure compliance with the code. The amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) Code of Conduct is a set of principles for socially responsible businesses and their business partners. We are a member of BSCI and have enshrined its 11 principles into our Code of Conduct.
WE ARE A MEMBER OF UN GLOBAL COMPACT
We have been a member of UN Global Compact Denmark since 2010, incorporating its ten principles about human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption practices into our Code of Conduct.
WE ARE A MEMBER OF ETHICAL TRADE DENMARK
In 2021 Skagerak became a member of Ethical Trade Denmark, which works to facilitate international trade in accordance with human- and labour rights, and to help companies in their efforts for ethical trade without corruption in developing countries.
