Deuter Sport Performance Check 2014
Deuter Sport meets FWF’s management system requirements for the third year of membership and goes beyond some of them. Deuter reached a monitoring threshold of 97% conducting audits and workplace education programme trainings at its production sites. Deuter Sport participates in FWF’s project with
various outdoor companies to assess the impact of hypothetical increases towards living wage benchmarks.
Through this engagement Deuter Sport shows that it is committed to working towards implementation of living wages in collaboration with FWF. Deuter Sport has a two suppliers for its two product groups: One supplier using three production sites for backpacks, one supplier for sleeping bags. Each
supplier uses some subcontractors which produce small items for the backpacks (part-sewing; 3% of total FOB). All subcontractors are known to Deuter Sport.
A challenge for the coming year of FWF affiliation is to include the subcontractors more in the monitoring system of Deuter Sport.
