Amefa recognizes the importance of social responsibility. For more than 10 years the Amefa head office is a member of the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a business‐driven initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in the global supply chain. BSCI unites hundreds of companies around one common Code of Conduct and supports them in their efforts towards building an ethical supply chain by providing them with a step‐by‐step developmentoriented system, applicable to all sectors and all sourcing countries. The system is based on three pillars: monitoring of non‐compliances by external independent audits; empowering of supply chains' actors through various capacity‐building activities; and engagement with all relevant stakeholders via constructive dialogue in Europe and supplying countries.
BSCI is a fast‐growing initiative open to retailers, importers, brands and manufacturers. The initiative gathers more than 900 companies worldwide involved in importing all types of goods, from clothing to lectronics to food products.
BSCI is an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association (FTA).
