BSCI

Social Corporate Responsibility

Since January 1, 2017, Koen Pack has become a member of the BSCI program. BSCI is an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association (FTA) and stands for Business Social Compliance Initiative. The initiative was established to improve working conditions among others in the supply chain worldwide. We think equal and good working conditions for everyone are important in our supply chain. In consultation with our producers in e.g. Kenya, China, Vietnam and Myanmar, we ensure that the working condition requirements are met. Koen Pack has been following the Sedex program for several years, in this program good working conditions are also ensured. Sedex is a nonprofit organization, working to improve corporate ethics and responsibility. BSCI participants and vendors attend training on different themes as described in the 11 principles.

The 11 principles of the BSCI

This includes ensuring equal opportunities for employees, risk assessments, corporate social responsibility policy, freedom of association, special protection of young workers, combating child and forced labor, paying fair compensation and facilities for a safe and healthy workplace. More information can be found in the Code of Conduct.

Sedex, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange, empowers sustainable and ethical supply chains, is a not for profit membership organization dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.
