Compliance with social standards and fair working conditions in supply chains is important to us. Around 95 percent of our textile suppliers have a good audit result according to the amfori BSCI social standard (amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative) or equivalent.
For Naturaline, even more stringent standards apply to the manufacture of and trade in Coop Naturaline textiles, and compliance with those standards is rigorously monitored along the whole production chain. In our cooperative partnerships with our partner companies, the focus is on long-term, continuous improvement. All suppliers and sub-contractors must, as a minimum, be amfori BSCI-compliant and attain SA8000 certification in the medium term. SA8000 is a certification that is also based on conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations (UN).
