The Social Standard of the uvex group
As a global leader in the development, manufacture and sale of personal protective clothing, uvex has integrated fundamental ethical principles into its corporate policy and into the way it does business ever since the company was established in 1926. We expect the same commitment from all our business partners. Our principle of protecting people is a binding commitment to our customers and their employees – and also to our own staff and those of our business partners.
It is our corporate policy that uvex works only with companies that respect basic human rights and the freedom of their employees to carry out their work. Against this backdrop, the uvex group has developed a catalogue with seven core demands, which our business partners must apply. This Social Standard is based on specifications of the International Labour Organization (ILO), which represent the basis for all recognised social standards such as Social Accountability SA 8000.
