BRICpro is an ethical sourcing company that helps design brands in the production of furniture, interior design and textile products. We assist from drawings to finished products and we focus on making the products in the most ethical and sustainable way possible by using responsible factories and sustainable materials. Our ambition is to be part of the solution and be part of solving some of the big challenges we see in the world.
In this way, social and environmental responsibility, product quality and economic profit go hand in hand in the BRICpro mind-set. This demands for a high focus on design and quality as well as on sustainability, human and labour rights and ethical business behaviour.
Sustainability at BRICpro is about seeing the possibilities to have a positive impact on the World around us – both regarding people and planet. However, it all starts with being aware of the influence and potential negative impact we have on the World through our business activities, which is why we have great focus on both our due diligence and our opportunities to create positive changes.
While always having an eye on the positive changes we can create, our focus is on two primary areas
- Creating improvements at responsible production partner
- Promote and use sustainable materials to support a greener world
Responsible production partners:
We work to ensure that a 100% of our manufacturing partners are CSR approved. Either they are certified in social and environmental compliance, or they are visited and approved by a BRICpro colleague. The standards that our suppliers should work to follow is in line with the UN Global Compact, ILO and The international declaration of Human Right:
- No child labour or forced labour is accepted
- Compliance to national law
- People should be treated equally and with respect
- Healthy and safe working condition for all people
- The rights of Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
- Protection of the Environment
We are well aware that things are much more complex in reality so therefore we are always trying to engage with our suppliers to help find solutions for some of the issues they are struggling to solve. Our approach is to focus on all the positive gains of improving working conditions and focusing on more sustainable solutions. To help us in our search for professional and responsible partners many of our suppliers are BSCI, SA8000, or GOTS certified.
As a sourcing company BRICpro is always involved in the design process and we have a highly skilled design and production team ready to assist our clients with choosing sustainable materials instead of conventional ones.
