Sustainability and Social Responsibility

  • We believe we can help change the world by doing business in a responsible way. As a global operating company, we work hard to introduce sustainable and social responsible products and practices in all we do. Today it is not enough to just deliver good quality products at a good price, it should be done in a way that does not harm people or the environment. We understand this consumer expectation and share this ambition.

    At marlies|dekkers we work with suppliers who share our sustainable and social responsible goals. We consciously build long-term relationships with our suppliers to ensure continuity and high quality. We visit each factory several times a year to make sure they comply to our standards.

    By managing our packing and transportations responsibly, we limit our environmental impact. We use only recycled material for our packing and we transport our goods primarily via sea and by exception, via air. It is our policy not to transport beyond 5% of all goods via air, to limit our carbon footprint.

    marlies|dekkers is a member of amfori. We require our suppliers to be amfori-BSCI and amfori-BEPI compliant and we monitor suppliers in their compliance process. Being an amfori member enables us to take responsibility and to monitor social compliance and environmental performances of our suppliers and work closely with them on these topics.
