How do we ensure good animal welfare?
Bik Bok, part of Varner, defines requirements, complies with standards and applies certification procedures so as to safeguard animal welfare when producing raw materials.
We define requirements for our suppliers by asking them to sign our Animal Welfare Policy. We also use third-party certification procedures to ensure that animal welfare is safeguarded.
“Textile Exchange’s Responsible Down Standard is one example of that kind of certification. All the down we buy is certified according to this standard, which aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not come to unnecessary harm. This is verified by a third party.”
