Social Compliance

"We take care of our people, because passionate employees make all the difference in today's competitive landscape."

 

Our compliance with ethical trading and social policies is not only our duty as an international company—we care deeply about all of our employees because we understand that our people are the backbone of our business, and all of our people should feel valued and respected for the work that they do.

We ensure strict adherence to the following policies through verified third-party auditors as well as through audits conducted both internally and by customers.
