It is our view that in a global economy social responsibility of international companies is not only restricted to sales markets but must also apply in all regions where they operate, wherever possible.
As a member of the Association of Non Food Importers (ANFI), an association with more than 260 well-known importers who have joined the 'social fair' initiative, Takko Fashion takes the subject of working conditions and social responsibility very seriously at home and abroad.
A contractual agreement between Takko Fashion and its producers and subcontractors governs adherence to social standards in the producing countries. A fixed code of conduct applies to all producers and suppliers that commits all company operators to utmost fairness, honesty and responsibility in every aspect of their business. Takko Fashion or independent organisations regularly control this through unannounced visits to local production sites, for example. Every breach against the contractually set standards that become known to us will result in appropriate corrective action being taken. Should these also be unsuccessful, then we will terminate the business relationship.
