We cooperate with many suppliers across the world. We deeply care about doing our part when it comes to improving working conditions. That is why, on March 1st 2021, WHITEWEAR became a member of amfori BSCI.
What is amfori BSCI
Amfori believes in a world where trade facilitates social, environmental and economic benefits for everybody. To achieve that, amfori BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) uses a code of conduct to which all members adhere. This code is built upon 11 principles and values that ensure ethically and socially responsible business conduct. The code also sets several demands for factories that produce our wares regarding their employees' working conditions. Conditions that are audited regularly by an independent third party.

Amfori's Core Values
Amfori has three core values that guide the organisation and its members: continuous improvement, cooperation, and empowerment.

What Does the amfori BSCI Membership Mean to WHITEWEAR?
Many of our business partners are BSCI audited already. With the amfori BSCI membership, we can now actively participate in further improving working conditions, together with our business partners and in our own supply chain. The eleven principles represent areas where WHITEWEAR is obliged to continue working for an even better and more sustainable supply chain.
The amfori BSCI membership also incorporates the amfori Academy – an innovative digital platform for developing sustainable supply chain management skills. It offers training to both our business partners and us – knowledge we can use when we visit our partners across the world, allowing us to evolve together.
WHITEWEAR cares about the environment and decent working conditions for all parties involved, making the amfori BSCI membership a natural step in our continued development.
