Scandia Gear partners with amfori BSCI
November 08, 2019
We are pleased to inform that Scandia Gear has become a member of amfori BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). The immediate benefits of this partnership are the expansion of oversight and the enhancement of the health and wellbeing inside our production partners' facilities.
Our amfori BSCI partnership is an important next step in implementing our sustainability policy. The amfori BSCI's Code of Conduct will supercede our own and must be both agreed and adhered to by our production partners. Understandably, the assistance of BSCI advisors and trainers in our local markets will be invaluable.
Amfori BSCI's Code of Conduct is founded on 11 principles. For example: non compliance for child labour, occupational health and safety, prevention of discrimination, ensure fair renumeration and decent working hours, and protection of the environment. Through extensive BSCI audits in accordance with the amfori BSCI’s Code of Conduct, Scandia's production partners are given rankings ranging from A to E with the overarching purpose being the continuous improvement of workplace health and wellbeing.
