Corporate responsibility

Consumers are becoming increasingly sensitive to the issue of social responsibility in the international supply chain. It is also a significant contributory factor to sustainable growth in supplier countries, serving to enhance security of supply and the quality of imported goods.

Importing retail traders who belong to AVE are acutely aware of their responsibility towards people and the environment. AVE is committed to the meaningful and practice-oriented improvement of social standards in the global supply chain. AVE is therefore one of the founding members and supporters of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), which has developed and implemented a code of conduct and effective monitoring of social standards around the world.
