In the last few days our company has successfully passed with great satisfaction a voluntary and independent assessment called “SMETA”.
The SMETA audit (Sedex Member Ethical Audit) is a type of audit internationally carried out, promoted and regulated by Sedex, a not for profit membership organisation dedicated to driving ethical improvements in global supply chains. Sedex has members in over 150 countries.
During the assessment, the auditor (an associate of an independent and international certification body) has verified that the health, safety and working conditions inside the company have been in compliance with the ETI base code. ETI Ethical Trading Initiative is a leading alliance of companies, trade unions and NGOs that promotes respect for workers’ rights around the globe.
The ETI Base Code is internationally recognised and considers nine base rules.
- Employment is freely chosen
- Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected
- Working conditions are safe and hygienic
- Child labour shall not be used
- Living wages are paid
- Working hours are not excessive
- Not discrimination is practiced
- Regular employment is provided
- No harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed
Domus Line respects and carefully puts into practice these ethical principles encompassing all of the company’s activities because a healthy and calm working environment is one of the key factors in its successful business.
The application of these ethical standards doesn’t just apply within our company, as Domus Line controls and is constantly committed to ensure that these rules are also respected by its local and international suppliers.
