CSR


CSR flows from action, not words



CSR is about taking responsibility for a company’s impacts on people and the environment. In a new partnership with Bureau Veritas ID® has taken CSR to a new level.

Our company was founded more than three decades ago. People did not talk about CSR back then, but from the beginning we knew we wanted to be a supplier that did things properly – and hence responsibly – irrespective of where in the world our goods were produced.
 
This approach has given us a reputation as one of the best in the industry at delivering high quality, well-designed and durable products. And we will continue to do so. In our experience there are always customers who understand the value of quality – and one of these is sustainability. A good product which lasts a long time is far more ethical and environmentally friendly than a throw away product. This makes our contribution to sustainability very concrete and effective, as it is integrated into everything we do – every day.

Raising the bar with Bureau Veritas

ID® has attained OEKO-TEX® certification, and has been a member of BSCI for many years. ID® also works with CSR based on the 10 principles in the UN global compact, which promote human rights, the environment and anticorruption.

Yet we wanted to add something more which could further raise our standards for quality, environment and ethical considerations. We therefore initiated a partnership with Bureau Veritas in 2015. This has led to a revised version of our quality manual, which includes input from the Danish Technological Institute. This manual is not a declaration of intent, but a tool which has already been put to use. It is divided into seven sections containing specific requirements for suppliers’ processes and the products they deliver to us. Each section contains detailed but comprehensible follow-up tools, which are significantly improving our efforts. The manual is targeted at the people who have to work within this framework. We were determined to give our business partners a practical tool. One that set reasonable requirements for their efforts, and was realistic to implement. Ultimately it is only the intentions which are translated into action that count!

More audits – better documentation

The total number of visits to our partners from third party organisations has more than doubled in just two years. This has had a positive effect on the factories’ performance, and since BSCI adjusts follow-up initiatives to match the need, these have been correspondingly reduced. However, our partnership with Bureau Veritas ensures that we continue to maintain and retain our follow-up, so that the BSCI Code of Conduct is observed. The new manual is supplemented by even more audits at our partners’ factories, in which Bureau Veritas participates. This ensures detailed control, better follow-up and more thorough and current documentation. We have also incorporated more stringent requirements on the use of various chemicals and cleaner technology in production processes – known as BAT (Best Available Techniques).
