Our responsibility

The guiding principle, to promote sustainable development by means of trustful cooperation and training, is firmly anchored in our corporate culture.

Sustainable, organic and Fair Trade

BIMECO is continuously developing its cooperation with suppliers using certified organic cotton and paying attention to fair working conditions. For this reason we can supply our customers with yarns in accordance with the Öko-Tex® Standard 100 and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), as well as arrange Fair Trade certified yarn for them.

Out of conviction, we are partner of the initiatives "Cotton made in Africa" and "Better Cotton". We also support the Initiatives for Sustainable Cotton (http://www.sustainable-cotton.net/en/supporters/bimeco/), a broad alliance of textile and fashion companies, NGOs, associations and other stakeholders. We are therefore making a contribution to improving the living conditions of the cotton farmers and their families, as well as to the more environmentally friendly cultivation of cotton.


Code of Conduct

Since 2011, a Code of Conduct regarding the compliance of labour standards has been the basis of the business relationship with our suppliers. The Code of Conduct is based on the guidelines of the core labour standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), which forbids, among other things, child or forced labour and makes basic demands with regard to working time, remuneration as well as health and occupational safety.
