The abbreviation SEDEX stands for Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. This database is a globally recognized online platform for the transparent exchange of information on the social and ethical sustainability of companies.
In order to maintain our membership in the SEDEX database, we have started to conduct SEDEX audits according to the SMETA4Pillar guidelines in our plants. SMETA stands for SEDEX Member Ethical Trade Audit and is one of the most widely used audit concepts in the world.
By registering as a B-member supplier, we have the opportunity to share our SMETA audit reports with other members and customers.
Through this membership we show our customers and partners that we work according to the principles of ethically and socially sustainable production and thus contribute to a significant improvement of ethically responsible business practices along the entire value chain.
