Designing our supply chain in a transparent way
We have longstanding working relationships with selected suppliers who are also committed to sustainability and social responsibility and who share our values.
During regular on-site visits, our own employees and independent organisations check our partners for compliance with laws and human and workers’ rights. To support our partners, we offer supplier training and facilitate learning within the framework of supplier days. Transparency in our supply chain is an important component for a trusting cooperation, and the perception that our company is a responsible one.
We have been working with responsible partners in our supply chain for some time now. Together, we design fashion for the future whereby we consider social responsibility and the environment.
When selecting and using new suppliers, we have also defined a connection process that ensures our sustainability criteria are guaranteed.
Together with our suppliers, we are championing fair working conditions internationally. We are members of various organisations, such as amfori (since 2014), the leading international business association for free and sustainable trade worldwide. The amfori code of conduct (BSCI code of conduct) naturally applies to the entire TriStyle Group. It requires us to comply with ethical behaviours, occupational safety, and to respect human rights.
The amfori BSCI code of conduct also includes an anonymous complaints process. This gives all stakeholder groups, such as factory employees worldwide, the opportunity to report possible breaches.
In addition, a separate complaints mechanism has been established for the TriStyle Group which is posted in the production facilities in the respective national language.
Anyone with a work-related connection such as employees, trainees, applicants and business partners can use the following whistleblowing system
for information or complaints.
Any violation of rules for the prevention of money laundering, terrorist financing, product safety and conformity, environmental protection, protection of privacy and personal data, as well as violations of human rights can be reported. Reported breaches or complaints are investigated with regard to violations of standards, the code of conduct and guidelines. The identity of a complainant is kept confidential. At the same time, reports can also be submitted anonymously. The procedure is carried out neutrally, free of influence and confidentially. The system can be accessed at any time and in different languages.
