GLOBAL
RESPONSIBILITY?

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

We work with a three-pillar concept to continuously strive for zero harmful substances in our products:

1. Our products undergo chemical and physical tests carried out by independent test laboratories around the world
2. We make preferential use of materials that are certified to the OEKO-TEX Standard 100
3. Quality testing is carried out by the brands themselves

 

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

We work and cooperate exclusively with production partners, whose working conditions conform to our social standards. We have production premises checked as early as in the process of selecting our suppliers and subsequently continuously by experienced auditors of our independent service partner ELEVATE Ltd. (www.elevatelimited.com), so as to ensure that our requirements are met. ELEVATE Ltd. is one of the world’s leading testing institutes which focuses its activities especially on a sustainable supply-chain management. When visiting production facilities, the auditors gain an insight into the working conditions on site and can establish on the basis of a comprehensive catalog of criteria, whether and to what extent our requirements are satisfied. Should possible deviations from our standards be identified, an action plan aimed at remedying such infringements is jointly worked out and will be implemented by the supplier within a set period of time. In a final step, the auditors examine the improvement activities once again.

OUR CLAIM: WE GET INVOLVED

In addition to our unceasing efforts to optimize daily work processes, the CBR Fashion Group actively supports a number of non-profit organizations.

The „Fur Free Retailer Program“ advocates against the use of real fur

We support the protection of animals and our production uses no real fur! The CBR Fashion Group is a member of the “Fur Free Retailer Program”, representing our contribution to eliminating the use of real fur. The Fur Free Retailer Program is an international initiative which helps consumers to find guaranteed fur-free fashion articles. The German representative of the program is the animal protection organization, “FOUR PAWS International”. More about the "Fur Free Retailer Program"

The „German Garments Foundation“ - Create space and do something good

The German Garments Foundation collects well-preserved clothing and household linen. If at least one of our brands Street One or CECIL is included in a donation, the customer will receive a coupon for the next purchase from us. In 2015, the German Garments Foundation distributed about 260,000 kg of new and used textiles as humanitarian aid in various projects and helped so many people in need.

AfB social & green IT - To increase sustainability in our society

The AfB is a non-profit integration company with 19 locations in Europe. Half of all jobs are occupied by people with disabilities. The company specializes in preparing and retooling outdated IT hardware. CBR Fashion GmbH has been supporting the company for several years and donated a total of 217 IT devices in 2018.
