For a collective approach to protecting the environment, Amfori has drafted the BEPI (Business Environmental Performance Initiative) code of conduct, which outlines 11 key conditions.
These principally focus on energy consumption, water usage, water pollution, air pollution, soil exhaustion and waste. Vespo endorses these goals by completing the Amfori BEPI self-assessment for all of its products and, in turn, implementing improvements according to BEPI guidelines.
Oeko-Tex is a worldwide, independently accredited certification body that issues certificates to products and factories. It tests the products, substances and accessories that are used in our clothing for banned and hazardous chemicals. If these are not harmful to the consumers or factory workers then the products are certified. This is an ongoing product-testing process and involves checks on production processes whereby certification takes account of the revised laws. It is an ongoing process.
All of Vespo’s products fall under the Oekotex certificate.
