In addition to the assessments that are already being carried out in our company on other aspects, we would like to assess the environmental and ethical aspects. Therefore,
     – It is our common obligation to ensure that our products are made under ethical acceptable conditions.
     – Furthermore, it is our common obligation to ensure that the products we receive from you are made under environmentally
        acceptable conditions, hence suppliers should demonstrate environmental focus.
Together we can promote equality, improve the lives of our employees, stop abuse, say no to discrimination and corruption, and promote environmental improvement.
