DK Company collaborates with factories that are committed to increase sustainability in our supply chain and ensuring that working conditions are decent.
Most of our products are manufactured in developing countries where the income that families generate from the textile industry can be important to their livelihood,
and we are proud to be part of creating jobs there. However, we do recognise that there are challenges that must be dealt with, and we believe in a continuous dialogue with the factories to improve working conditions
and making sure that they work in accordance with the BSCI Code of Conduct. We have a dedicated team in Denmark, China, India, Bangladesh and Turkey who work with sustainability every day.
Our CSR Strategy is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The United Nations (UN) has ratified a list of 17 goals to transform our world and make it better. These 17 goals are achievable before 2030 and concern subjects such as how to eradicate poverty and hunger and ensure good health, education and gender equality for all.
If we all, both as companies and as individuals, do our bit to reach these goals, we firmly believe that they can be achieved.
In DK Company, we have chosen 3 specific focal goals:
Because there are many women in our line of business. Women sow our garments, a high percentage of women design our styles, and our consumer group is women. We are aware of the differences of different cultures, but we want to do our bit to enlighten the women who work in our production chain and make sure that they are well-informed about their rights as well as to continuously work towards a higher degree of gender equality in all aspects of our business.
RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION
Because we know that we work in an industry where there are challenges when it comes to the production of the goods we sell. We work hard to ensure that our production is responsible, and we want to communicate clearly to our customers what we do to have a responsible production chain so that they can make an enlightened choice when they shop for clothes.(please see the "audits at the factories" section)
Furthermore, we want to contribute to communicating the responsibility we all have as consumers when it comes to our environmental footprint, and how we can reduce this by e.g. making sure our clothes last longer.
Because whichever way you look at it, the fashion industry is a polluting industry, and we want to do our bit to make our supply and distribution chains less polluting. We have set goals to use more sustainable materials (please see the “sustainable materials” section) and to bring down our emission of CO2, our consumption of water and our use of packaging.
