What are you doing to ensure good working conditions in the production facilities of your partner companies?
We work continuously at all of our locations to ensure good production conditions for the people that work in them. To this end, we are involved in an ongoing process.
We have developed a code of conduct for supplier companies specialized in bike manufacturing. Negotiations are currently underway to encourage our suppliers to sign this code of conduct. For this task we are relying on our new Managing Director Guido Dohm, who in his time as a CEO of textile companies managed to enact similar codes that significantly improved the working conditions of numerous employees in the textile industry.
Our suppliers of clothing and accessories have already signed a similar code of conduct.
