What is BSCI?
The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a leading business-driven initiative that supports retailers, importers and brands to improve working conditions worldwide. It is applicable to different sizes of companies and covers all products sourced from any country. Its Code of Conduct is based on the most fundamental labour standards that protect the workers’ rights, including the International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions.
The BSCI provides companies with practical management, auditing tools and guidelines to implement BSCI’s Code of Conduct and to monitor improvement of working conditions in supply chains. Participating companies are invited to actively develop sustainable working conditions in the global supply chain.
As a dedicated and responsible company, passionate employees are our most valuable resource. Hence, it is important for us to create a workplace where people enjoy coming to work every day. This gives us motivation in terms of our daily conduct and the sustainable culture we build.
We have been trying the best to enhance our social compliance. All the commitment and efforts are proven to be worthwhile. Today, PT Cavron Global is approved by the BSCI and became one of its participating members.
To keep a promise, we will continue to uphold the BSCI Code of Conduct, respect the highest labour protection and human rights, within our capability and responsibility.
The BSCI Code of Conduct
