Our Five Focus Areas

Supply Chain Management

Every year BESTSELLER brands have approximately 250 million products manufactured at approximately 800 factories in Europe and Asia. We acknowledge that this great leverage also brings along a responsibility to ensure that our products are manufactured under the right conditions both for the workers involved in the production and for the environment.

BESTSELLER does not own any factories but we cooperate with suppliers who are willing to meet the commitments of BESTSELLER’s Code of Conduct and Chemical Restrictions. Our Code of Conduct describes the ethics and behaviour that we wish to promote throughout the supply chain and is directed at any supplier and his subcontractors who manufacture for BESTSELLER.

Each product is comprised of many components, such as fabric, thread, buttons, zippers etc., and it goes through a number of processes along the production line, such as dying, printing, finishing etc. which often take place at subcontractors. We continuously work to obtain transparency further back in our supply chain and to make positive changes wherever we have the possibility.

Sustainability in BESTSELLER

Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct outlines the ethics and practices that we want to promote throughout the supply chain. It is based on and follows the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, key UN conventions as well as International Labour Organization conventions and recommendations.

To follow up on and improve the conditions at the factories, we have a Compliance Programme in place. We visit factories on a frequent basis and work in close collaboration with our suppliers and external partners to make long-term sustainable improvements. Additionally, external auditing companies conduct audits at the factories on a regular basis.
