Code of Conduct
Besides continuous sustainability improvements in our own product range and way of doing business, we also work together with our supplying partners to increase sustainability across the chain. To quantify the improvements and celebrate successes, we use the ECOstyle Code of Conduct since 2014. With this Code of Conduct, our supplying partners commit to a base line of responsible business and can adopt various specified ambition levels. For instance with regards to the use of green energy, recycling, reduction of CO2 and optimisation of transport kilometres.
With an annual sustainability survey and practical suggestions for improvement, we are happy to be able to report continuous improvement in our suppliers’ sustainability scores since the introduction of the code. Between 2014 and 2017 the average score increased from 55% to 80%. We are proud to be part of this sustainable partnership with our suppliers. In 2017 our partner Landguth was awarded the ECOstyle Sustainability Prize for achieving this years’ highest score.
