California Supply Chain Disclosure
Verification of product supply chain:
Before MADELEINE starts a cooperation with business partners, they request the suppliers to commit to social standards and to mutual contracts.
We perform a risk evaluation of the production countries of our partners based on the amfori BSCI risk classification. Based on the risk index, the amfori audit requirements are defined. In countries with a high risk the BSCI audit system is applied and audits are conducted. It is our goal to have all production sites in risk countries audited in accordance with the amfori BSCI CoC. Furthermore valid audits have to be available and the producers have to engage in the improvement in the performance.
Certification of supply chain security:
As member of the TriStyle Group, MADELEINE has been and currently is a participant of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) which is part of a foreign trade network called amfori, see: www.amfori.org.
MADELEINE commits to the BSCI code of conduct (CoC) and does not tolerate any form of slavery, servitude, forced, compulsory labour and human trafficking and works strongly on the early detection, monitoring and remediation of such issues in its supply chains.
MADELEINE adheres to standards of responsible conduct and train employees to treat each other with respect, and to adhere to laws, regulations and standards. MADELEINE maintains formal employment policies and standards under which there is no room for forced or compulsory labor in any work or service. The reliable cooperation with the suppliers and partners in the supply chain is very important to us as well as their working conditions, employees from sourcing, buying, design and quality departments visit the production sites regularly.
