Code of conduct for fair and safe working conditions
The compliance to our requirements is regularly monitored by independent inspectors. We do not operate any own factories. Our products are manufactured by our partners, mainly based in Asia and some in Europe. Therefore we feel all the more responsible for ensuring that all those who work for us do so according to uniform and fair legal labour standards.
