OUR MEMBERSHIPS UNDERLINE OUR SUSTAINABLE ASPIRATIONS
The cooperative CADS for securely defined standards for the production of shoes and leather goods informs about the production and commercialisation of shoes and shoe materials free of harmful substances as well as environmentally friendly production.
As a member of CADS, we are committed to protecting people and the environment from harmful substances. For this reason, we are committed to ensuring that our products permanently comply with the German and European limit values for restricted substances.
In addition, CADS provides us with information on innovative production methods in order to manufacture more sustainably.
With our membership of amfori BSCI we set a good example (see also above under 3. 2 „Code of Conduct“).
The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a programme of the amfori economic association to improve social standards in a global value chain. The independent organisation, based in Brussels, offers companies a code of conduct and a systematic monitoring and qualification system.
We are therefore continuing our social audit activities with the aim of improving the social standards of our suppliers, as we have already done in the past with the Sumations organisation.
