A return towards a modern, lightweight design and the introduction of technological innovations is a noticeable trend in the retail sector, which is also gaining momentum in Poland. However, those companies that successfully combine trends with high safety standards and environmentally friendly solutions will be triumphant.
Europe currently generates approximately 3 million tons of waste per year according to EU estimates, and estimates for the future indicate that these numbers can grow. The huge amount of waste produced cannot justify pursuing market trends. Therefore, economically and socially aware companies, mindful of their obligations not only to the customer but also their employees and the environment, have understood both the place of work and the world in which we live.
In the scope of monitoring working conditions, as well as eco-friendly solutions, there are more and more entities which aim to monitor standards in the retail industry. Fair Wear Foundation, a non- profit organization which today associates more than 90 companies, including Continental Clothing Co., McGregor, Jack Wolfskin and Mammut operate in this essence. According to the Fair Wear Foundation, it is necessary to accept the fact that there are now no mass-produced clothes that would arise under the principle of one hundred percent “fairness”. Companies, however, have the resources and opportunities to significantly raise the standards of work and treatment of employees, offering them decent conditions and safety, and reduce the negative impact on the environment.
Companies that join the Fair Wear Foundation and similar organizations commit themselves most frequently to monitor organisations and institutions carrying out orders, accepting that they have an influence on working conditions of employees in individual producers and suppliers. Companies decide to also implement optimal solutions within their own structures in the safety and quality of working conditions and services. This brings measurable effects. Today, companies such as Mammut Salewa or the aforementioned Mammumut successfully promote not only their products but their contribution to improving working conditions in the production processes carried out by the suppliers, and the idea of sustainable development is reflected in the concepts of showrooms and offices of the brand.
