IT’S SIMPLY PART
OF OUR STYLE.
Our customers are not only interested in making sure they’re in style. What’s as important for them as looking good is that the clothes they wear are manufactured under fair working conditions.
WE SET HIGH STANDARDS FOR OURSELVES
The CBR Fashion Group stands behind all of our civic, ecological and societal responsibilities. All of our business relationships are based on the CBR Code of Conduct. The CBR Code comprises all of the key principles and standards of the agreements and norms of the International Labour Organization (ILO), the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other related UN conventions on children’s rights and the elimination of discrimination.
OUR CLAIM: BEST QUALITY WITHOUT POLLUTANTS
Within our 3-Pillar concept, we are constantly working on achieving zero pollutants:
1. Chemical tests of our suppliers conducted by independent testing laboratories around the world.
2. Our products are tested based on Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
3. Due diligence assessments conducted by the brands themselves.
What is Oeko-Tex Standard 100?
It is a globally uniform testing and certification system for textile industry raw materials, intermediate products and end products. The pollutant testing required for certification covers illegal and regulated substances along with chemicals acknowledged to be harmful to health. The toleration limits specified for certification are even stricter than the legally-stipulated limits.
OUR CLAIM: FAIR FRAMEWORK CONDITIONS FOR EVERYONE
People should be able to develop and progress with us. This requires partner-like business relationships, fair production conditions and solid future prospects. This is why the trust of our employees, shareholders, business partners and customers is a top priority for us.
OUR CLAIM: WE CHECK FOR OURSELVES
Our specially trained employees visit and assess all direct suppliers and their direct subcontractors. We also test compliance with our Production Guide by having our suppliers inspected by neutral, accredited testing institutes on a regular basis. Our testing institutes are certified in accordance with SA8000. Problems revealed during the course of these inspections are resolved by working together with those responsible in each respective case (“coaching approach”).
What is SA8000?
SA8000 (“Social Accountability International”) is an independent international standard for socially responsible production and company management. This certificate applies to all types of industries and is one of the first auditable social norms for the certification of humane workplaces.
