We take our social responsibility seriously and ensure that operations at our plants are as resource and energy efficient as possible, and we choose material and component suppliers that follow the same responsible practices as we do. We operate in a labour-intensive sector, and in line with our strategy, we want to be an attractive employer. We are committed to offering our employees secure jobs, and we expect our partners to do the same.

The aspects of responsible sourcing have long been highlighted in the footwear and textile industries. Responsible sourcing ensures that even those steps in the production process that are not in our own hands are carried out with respect for the environment and people. We have assessed sustainability aspects in the footwear and textile industry, such as environmental impacts related to production and the sourcing of raw and other materials, as well as the realisation of human rights in our sourcing processes.
