corporate social responsibility
Protective working clothing and equipment every step of the way
Everything we at Wenaas do is focused on protection and responsibility. We are well aware that our
company has environmental and social impact that exceeds far beyond the company itself. As a market leader in workwear and protective clothing, we make high demands on ourselves and work actively to implement improvements.
In addition to seeking out improvements within our own organisation on an ongoing basis, we also make demands on our suppliers. Everyone we work with has signed a Code of Conduct that sets out rules and regulations for how to treat employees and the environment. In this context, we take a zero tolerance approach to forced labour and child labour. We also insist that our partners
respect the freedom to organise, equal opportunities and fair, statutory pay, fixed working hours, a safe working environment, and legally binding working conditions; and we follow up to make sure that all obligations, laws and regulations concerning social security are respected.
