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.

That is why MARC O’POLO AG is a member of amfori – Trade with Purpose. For the aim of improving working conditions throughout the global supply chain, we use amfori BSCI.

amfori BSCI Principles:

  • No child labour
  • Special protection for young workers
  • No bonded labour
  • No precarious employment
  • No discrimination
  • Appropriate wages
  • Decent working hours
  • The rights of freedom of association and right to collective bargaining
  • Protection of the environment
  • Ethical business behavior

In order to monitor compliance with the amfori BSCI Code of Conduct, audits are carried out by accredited independent third auditing companies in production facilities (primarily in risky countries).

If you would like to know more about the Code of Conduct or amfori – Trade with Purpose, please refer to our Sustainability Report or to the amfori homepage.
