About 730 factories around the world manufacture products for BESTSELLER every day. We are aware of the fact that we can have an important influence – especially on the suppliers who produce a large quantity of our clothes. It is our responsibility to use that influence the best way possible.
BESTSELLER operates in different countries where the basic values and attitudes can be very different from our way of thinking. For that reason there may be different understandings of what a good working environment should be like, and societal problems also affect the conditions at the factories.
We believe that mutual trust, dialogue, training, and development are important factors that can help create a common understanding of how a good working environment should be. If we are not able to create that understanding, the effort is only superficial and unimportant.
BESTSELLER’s Code of Conduct clarifies to our colleagues, our suppliers and other stakeholders the expectations and demands for the working conditions in BESTSELLER’s supply chain. A team of BESTSELLER employees work exclusively with our Code of Conduct in the countries where our products are manufactured.
Our Code of Conduct work is no guarantee, but it helps us contribute to improved conditions at the factories. However, it is an ongoing process which will never end. The important thing for us is that we experience continuous development. As long as this is the case, we continue the cooperation with our suppliers. Download our Code of Conduct here.
29 November 2012 we launched our Sustainability Report 2011/12. It is our first extensive report describing the challenges we face in our sustainability work and the results we have achieved so far. You can read our Sustainability Report 2012 here.
