In the selection of suppliers, Beter Bed Holding is highly concerned with both the commercial and the ethical sides of the relationship. The absolute precondition is that both the supplier itself and its suppliers adhere to all applicable laws and rules in their own countries. The method of doing business must be compatible with the standards and values of Beter Bed Holding, which are based on the United Nations Global Compact.
Stakeholders have stated that they expect large market parties such as Beter Bed Holding to play a pro-active role in chain management and focus within it mainly on the materials used, or to be used (wood, iron, down, cotton). To that end Beter Bed Holding will engage in dialogue with industry organisations such as the Dutch Initiative for Sustainable Trade (‘IDH’).
