Crafting is caring.
At Scotch & Soda we design our garments with great love and eye for detail.
In 2006 we have set up our own management system and an adequate Code of Conduct was introduced to our suppliers. Independent audit firms carried out yearly audits and set up corrective action plans in order to realize the requested improvements. But as business grew we decided to expand our CSR even more and became a member of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) in 2013. See also http://www.bsci-intl.org. The BSCI is a business driven initiative for companies committed to improve working conditions in the global supply chain. It unites more than 1000 companies worldwide around one common Code of Conduct and supports them with a step-by-step development oriented system.
The BSCI approach is first of all based on the principle of monitoring the supply chain by external auditors that are acknowledged by the Social Accountability Accreditation Services (SAAS). Secondly on empowering suppliers by providing extensive information to expand their knowledge and skills and finally on engaging active dialogs between stakeholders in the relevant sector to exchange experience and knowledge about the sustainable chain policy.
