On one hand, our respect goes to the people who manufacture our products.We do not close our eyes to injustices which they might encounter.Our business associates – suppliers, their producers and subcontractors – must therefore live up to their duty of care toward their employees and observe nationally and internationally accepted standards.
On the other hand, our respect goes to the unbelievable beauty and variety of nature.Nationally and internationally valid environmental regulations must be observed and it is necessary to minimise potentially negative influences. For this reason, we contractually obligate our business associates to recognise and implement the standards we have set. Only in this way can there be trust-based cooperation which not only satisfies our demands but also the expectations of our customers in purchasing a Jack Wolfskin product.
