Sourcing locally, in addition to its positive impact on the environment, is a great way to support local farmers and manufacturers. For raw materials not available nearby, the manufacturer must give priority to fair trade materials. This standard also encourages manufacturers to engage with social and humanitarian causes, in the interests of solidarity and mutual aid. The manufacturer must adhere, at a minimum, to a social and humanitarian cause and to a cause of conservation / protection of animals. On the other hand, as part of a sustainable development approach, the company must pay particular attention to the working conditions and well-being of its employees. Gender equality, fair remuneration, fight against social exclusion, etc. are all issues to be considered in a sustainable development strategy. The manufacturer must also ensure compliance with the rules of the ILO (International Labor Organization) with its suppliers. For all these environmental and social measures, a continuous improvement approach is encouraged.
