Fair & Equal
In 2018 we integrated our CSR strategy into our company goals. We’ve connected with the right partners such as Modint to support us in our CSR journey.
We are also a member of Amfori-BSCI, an independent organization which verifies that our factories operate in an ethical and social responsible way.
Our sewing facilities and practices are checked regularly by us and our partner in Asia.
At the headquarters of marlies|dekkers we’ve set up a Sustainability Project Group (SGP) with representatives from every department. The SGP meets up every month to monitor the progress.
Besides creating 5 year CSR plan with our long term goals, we have created a reciprocal Code of Conduct. Being fair and equal to us means being a business partner who respects and values its partner ships.
