2019 was marked by a record number of customer audits, both at our own production facility in Bangladesh (DBPL) and at our long-term Production Partners. Most audits were conducted by leading multinationals in the food, nutrition and pharma industry. We are proud to share that we passed all audits. DBPL even received a 100% score!

Auditors especially appreciate the professionalism and the level of knowledge of all employees. Not only in management, but also on the factory premises. All of them are well informed of all procedures and well trained. The sustainability initiatives were also highly regarded, including extensive employee Health & Safety programmes.

These audit results again prove the high quality and sustainable eye for detail of our own production facilities and the facilities of our Partners. A beautiful reward for our commitment to quality and multiple investments in our state-of-the-art cleanrooms.

In 2019, LC Packaging International B.V. became a member of Sedex, one of the world’s leading ethical trade service providers, striving to improve working conditions in global supply chains. In addition, as part of our Supplier Selection and Assessment Process, we ask all our key suppliers to become a member of the Sedex platform and upload proof of compliance to our Code of Conduct and additionally, perform a SMETA audit if requested (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit).

Wood and paper products originating from an FSC® certified forest can be recognised by the FSC® label.

Labelling our cardboard products and promoting them with the FSC® trademarks also helps customers to make informed decisions about the products and materials they purchase. Something our customers are increasingly asking for.

Since both LC Packaging and our Production Partners have developed strongly in recent years when it comes to labour standards and human rights, ethics and environmental efforts, LC Packaging updated its Global Supplier Code of Conduct in January 2019. This document prescribes values and principles LC Packaging has committed to worldwide: non-negotiable standards that we ask our partners to respect and adhere to when conducting business. We expect all our Partners to sign the Code of Conduct and deliver proof of compliance as part of our Supplier Selection Assessment Process.

The SMETA audit is one of the most widely used ethical audit formats in the world and uses the ETI Base Code, founded on the conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), as well as relevant local laws. The topics covered in the audits match the topics mentioned in our own Global Supplier Code of Conduct.
