FWF brands Mammut and ODLO are celebrating their 10 year membership at Fair Wear Foundation. Both companies adopted the FWF Code of Labour Practices early on in 2008. They had the same goal: to improve workplace conditions in the garment industry.
As one of the first FWF outdoor companies, Mammut was and still is dedicated to applying stringent standards for fair working conditions. ‘For Mammut, it is a top strategic goal to ensure that our products are manufactured in an environmentally and socially sound manner’, said Peter Hollenstein, Corporate Responsibility Manager of Mammut Sports Group AG. ‘FWF unites committed brands under a single roof. This is essential for Mammut to cooperate with other brands and combine strengths for improving workplace conditions in global supply chains.’
Julia Krämer, ODLO’s Sustainability Manager, commented: ‘Social and environmental responsibility has been at the heart of Odlo since the company was founded over 70 years ago and we are proud of our achievements towards a more sustainable future together with our partners. FWF membership especially helps us to improve our processes and the labour conditions thanks to exchange and a great deal of teamwork with FWF and other member brands like Mammut.’
