Questions & Answers
Sustainability subjects such as environmental protection and human rights are incredibly extensive, multi-faceted and very complex. Therefore, we have answered questions that we are frequently asked as compactly as possible.
We manufacture our products in partner factories in Asia and Europe. In this way, we provide long-term employment for several thousand people. We often have a long-standing and trusting relationship with our production sites. We select them carefully from the outset and set high expectations in terms of social and environmental standards. In order to enforce our standards, we incorporate them into our production contracts from the outset. Our Code of Conduct obliges all suppliers to comply with social and ecological standards which are based on internationally recognised industry standards and the ILO core labour standards. Compliance with the standards is permanently checked by our own employees on site, by members of our sustainability team, by the management and by independent auditors. Ninety-nine per cent of our order volumes are currently produced in factories that undergo regular BSCI, SMETA, SA8000 or PUMA SAFE audits. This way, we can ensure that our products are manufactured under safe and fair working conditions.
We know our production sites, we have a long-standing cooperation. Our
inspectors and employees are regularly on site. We attach a great deal of importance to the fact that
production takes place according to our quality standards and our high social and environmental standards.
Our Code of Conduct obliges all suppliers to comply with social and
ecological standards which are based on internationally recognised industry standards and ILO
core labour standards. Environmental protection is also regulated therein. We control these
regularly through our own employees, who are permanently on site, and independent organisations,
who audit the production sites. In addition, there are regular training sessions and round table
meetings to keep partners up to date.
