The Detmold Group is a manufacturer, not simply an importer and we take pride in the products we make, but we’re equally proud of the way we operate in our manufacturing plants around the globe.
We work to a strict Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, which covers fair wages and working conditions that are consistent with the needs and expectations of our global customers. In China alone we pass more than 30 independent audits each and every year from customers and independent bodies.
We focus on areas including fair hiring practices; safe working hours; no child labour; fair compensation and benefits; and workplace safety in all our manufacturing facilities.
All our manufacturing sites are committed to a rigorous social code of conduct, this includes being part of the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA). SMETA is an audit procedure providing an international standard for social accountability. This certification process is made up of four modules, including: Health and safety, Labour standards, Environmental and Business ethics.
