Responsibility in the Supply Chain.

Together with its suppliers and producers, MARC O’POLO aims for sustainable cooperation characterized by openness and confidence.

Worldwide, we cooperate with more than 100 suppliers and their producers. Most of them have been close partners for several years.
It is especially important for MARC O’POLO that its products be produced under humane working conditions, and that binding social standards are defined.

Our Code of Conduct (CoC) defines valid social standards throughout the company. Independent auditing agencies regularly monitor compliance with these standards.

The MARC O’POLO Code of Conduct includes the following principles:

  • No child labor
  • Special protection for young workers
  • No bonded labour
  • Appropriate wages

*In cases where this does not cover the cost of living, our manufacturers must provide adequate additional compensation.

As a member of the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), MARC O’POLO sets a further standard for ethically responsible procurement. This initiative aims at improving working conditions throughout the global supply chain.
