Sustainability
And
Inclusive

Agenta Group has been working towards a sustainable world long before 2000 and woke became everyday speech. And we still do. Sustainability and inclusiveness are in our blood.

Being a sustainable pioner has been costly. Partly because our choices of materials and production methods/-requirements are more costly, and partly because sustainable products has been, and still are, treated as non-circular by organisations like the Green Dot, etc.

Despite these facts we're still on the edge of innovation, and working towards changing the market, bit by bit, without deterioration of neither quality or durability. This is only achievable in collaboration with our suppliers, co-workers and you as a retailer.

At the heart of our operations there are people, like you and us. They are maybe not as privileged as us, which are born in the Nordics, but they are of same value. We have therefore always been focusing on the rights of children, international labour and human rights standards, the right to be part of a trade union and the right of an inclusive workplace.

To succeed in tomorrow's market we're therefore building a diverse set of resilient resources of people, knowhow, partners and products. Together we can take ambitious steps towards a more sustainable future and do changes that matters.

Transparency Act

Agenta Group has been a forerunner and an early developer of a wide set of Code of Conducts directed at its suppliers and its subcontractors. Our Code of Conduct is based on OECD guidelines and a prerequisite for any suppliers for doing business with us.

Even though we acknowledges that legislation and cultural patterns vary across the world, and that suppliers consequently operate under different circumstances, we have set a basic set of requirements for our suppliers. It forms the basis upon which Agenta Group will evaluation its supplier’s compliance with our requirements and expectations. Therefore, in cases where the law in question is more comprehensive than our “Code of Conduct”, current law applies. And in cases where our “Code of Conduct” is more comprehensive than the law in question, our “Code of Conduct” applies.

Through our Code of Conduct we put special focus on Child Labour (according to ILO #138 & 146), The Working Environment, The Right to Organise (according to ILO #87, 98 & 135, among others), Social Responsibility (according to Universal Declaration of Human Rights art. 19, among others), Environmental Issues (according to ISO 14000, among others) and the Protection of Animals.
