SUSTAINABILITY AT VERTICAS

Since 25 years Verticas has high expectations when it comes to realizing innovative and high quality promotion and merchandising products for their customers. In the course of the climate change Verticas has the duty to act with a social and ecological responsibility, to create a sustainable solution for the customer. The company’s philosophy creates an added value for the customer, the people and the environment.

Let us face the future together!

 

TARGET SETTING

For many years we have been ensuring that social and environmental standards are being observed. Our work ethic and the selection of our suppliers, factories and providers is influenced by that attitude.

We support the principles of the UN Global Compact of the United Nations that from our perspective form the fundament for a social and environmental global work ethic. Our market is developing in an unmanageable way – unfair methods are influencing the market and the legal minimum requirements are being ignored. We are committed to the principles and select our suppliers by signing agreements, that those principles are always followed. We therefore do not produce in Bangladesh, Pakistan or India – those countries where we know that the requirements for social ethics are being ignored. 2020 Verticas has been awarded with the EcoVadis CSR rating bronze-medal.

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL PRINCIPLES

Working conditions/Social standards

Prohibition of child labor / Salary, social benefits, working hours / free choice of employment / health and security / freedom of association / ban on discrimination / education

At no production stage it is allowed to revert to child labor. Our factories, suppliers and providers are strictly asked to follow the ILO Conventions to only employ men/women that have reached the legal working age. Salary and social benefits have to comply with basic principles concerning minimum wage, overtime and the legal social benefits. The working hours have to comply with the law. Forced labor is prohibited. We and our suppliers provide occupational safety and health management. The discrimination of employees is prohibited.

 

Environmental Responsibility

Environmental responsibility / environmentally friendly production / hazardous substances

Our factories, suppliers and providers have to act according to the precautionary principle. They should promote the development of environmental responsibility as well as environmental technologies. A Sedex certificate should be existent or should be aimed. In every production phase we guarantee a responsible handling with raw materials and natural resources. We use energy responsibly and try to eliminate accidents and negative environmental impacts. On top of that we focus on reducing our use of water and energy. 

 

Work Ethics

Anti-corruption / fair competition / security and quality / product safety

At all activities and work relationships we expect integrity. We prohibit every form of corruption, bribery, blackmailing and embezzlement. Every business activity needs to be within the competition law. Products and services need to fulfill quality and safety regulations that have beforehand been agreed in a contract. For quality control Verticas works closely with independent test laboratories like SGS Fresenius or LGA Bayern. The tests are based on norms like CE, EN 71 Part 1-8 or EN 62115.  

  • Electronics: Verticas GmbH is registered in the EAR = Elektroartikelregister (Verticas EAR Nr. DE 96497489) all products offered by Verticas have the ROHS standard
  • Cosmetics: No import. Production only with certified specialist in Europe
  • Food: No import. Production only with certified specialist in Europe
  • Textile: no use of AZO dyes (prohibited), strict adherence of formaldehyde limits, heavy metal analytics, wash tests (color fastness, shrinkage behavior)

 

 

 

PRODUCT RESPONSIBILITY

The climate change is on-going and the natural resources are limited – the economy needs to act more resource efficient.

We can influence the resource effectiveness as well as the production processes and the product life cycle. Processes are optimized and together with our partners we respect important standards.

Additionally Verticas draws its attention to the production of the textiles, promotion and merchandising products to secure that they are manufactured under good social and environmental conditions. By complying with the code of conduct we take responsibility for our products. On top of that we do safety tests. We trust the competences of our partners TÜV Rheinland, LGA Nürnberg, Prost & Partner and Fürth. Based on our customers’ requirements we have set our criteria on the “major-and-minor-mistakes” and the AQL Levels.

 

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

It is our fundamental concern that social and environmental standards are always kept in mind. That’s why in our office we act social, environmental and resource efficient. Our partners should act equally. We support the Auma Obama Foundation and see our social responsibility as a fundamental task.
