All BoConcept suppliers must follow a code of conduct in order to ensure that all BoConcept products are manufactured in a manner that respects the rights of their employees.
The purpose of the code of conduct is to ensure that BoConcept suppliers operate in accordance with internationally recognised standards on human rights, labour and environment. BoConcept adheres to the principles of this code and expects the same of its suppliers. The content is based on relevant ILO (International Labour Organisation) and UN conventions.
The aim of the code of conduct is not to end our business with non-compliant suppliers but to help our suppliers improve their social and environmental standards. BoConcept is therefore willing to work with suppliers to achieve their compliance with this code. However, we will not conduct business with a supplier if compliance with the requirements of the code is deemed impossible. Nor will we conduct business with a supplier engaged in violations of fundamental human rights.
The BoConcept Code of Conduct includes:
- Legal requirements
- Conditions of employment
- Child labour
- Forced labour
- Disciplinary practices
- Freedom of association and collective bargaining
- Working hours and compensation
- Respect for cultural values
- Workplace health and safety
- Environmental protection
- Management responsibilities
