Social Responsibility

It is important to us as a family business to take an active role in promoting fair working conditions in our supply chain. For this reason, the ARTEBENE Group joined the UN Global Compact initiative on corporate social responsibility in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and corruption prevention in 2017. To become a member of this initiative, we have undertaken to follow the 10 principles published by the United Nations. These principals are an integral part of our business relationships and of the ARTEBENE Purchasing Guidelines. As is customary in any good partnership, we agree in writing with our suppliers upon respecting the principles and we maintain our contacts by visiting them regularly at their sites.

Nachhaltigkeitsentwicklungsziele

 
In the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development approved in 2015, the international community of states expresses its conviction that global challenges can only be solved together. Building on the 10 principles, the signatories of the Global Compact are called upon to promote the general goals of the United Nations, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
 
 

 
 

Made with care

 
In addition to the principles of the UN Global Compact, it is also a personal concern of ours that our products are produced ethically. Finally, as a female brand, we want to further strengthen the role of girls and women in our society. Therefore, fair working conditions and the safety of our female colleagues in India are a very special matter of the heart for us. A private bus shuttle, for example, ensures that all seamstresses get to work and back home safely. Reinforced by many years of cooperation and on-site visits, it is thus possible to maintain our social and ecological standards.
