We can’t expect sustainable practices from our partners without setting an example ourselves.
Like everything we do, we take sustainability seriously. It’s a big part of our daily work and is done with the same attitude we apply to our products.
Although our people are happy working at Dimex and find purpose in their work, we must constantly ensure their job satisfaction just keeps on growing.
And make sure we’re helping advance general wellbeing and inclusiveness wherever we operate and have an influence.
That requires action from all of us. A brand can set goals and guidelines, but each and every one of us musttake responsibility for the actions – for making change a reality.
Everyone’s work is important, everyone’s actions are meaningful – true progress happens only through working together.
Sustainability is challenging, because the job is never finished – things can always be done better, even good things.
That’s one area where no one at Dimex ever accepts compromise.
EVERY TASK IS IMPORTANT, EVERY DEED MATTERS – TRUE PROGRESS DEMANDS TEAMWORK.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Our ”Code of Conduct” principles guide everything we do. We follow and evaluate how well we adhere to them. We are constantly prepared to improve our principles even further. We are in the process of aligning our code to match with the specifications of amfori.
OF OUR STAFF SEE THEIR WORK AS MEANINGFUL
We support our employees and pay close attention to their happiness and motivation in everyday situations as well as through regular working environment evaluations. We feel that our low 0,6% sick day rate is one indication of our people doing pretty good.
We are committed to the standards set by the amfori organization, which focuses on developing the sustainability and responsible behavior of international supply chains. We have audited all our partners to ensure they fulfill the requirements of amfori BSCI. Now we are in the process of aligning our environmental performance requirements to match those set by the amfori BEPI program.
SUSTAINABILITY IS IN MANY WAYS A PART OF EVERY WORKDAY – IN ADDITION TO DIMEX CLOTHES, I WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERY ONE OF OUR PEOPLE CAN DO THEIR JOB AS WELL AS POSSIBLE.

SUSTAINABILITY MEANS RESPECTING EACH OTHER
Customer satisfaction is our most important metric. We do not exist only to make a profit, but also to enable our customers to improve the quality and profitability of their operations. Workwear may play only a small role in the business of our customers, but that makes it even more important that they function seamlessly within our customers’ operations.
Consistent, on-time deliveries, reliable and durable products, and subcontractor’s (that means our) commitment to sustainable solutions now and in the future relieve many a headache and a lot of friction from our customers’ everyday lives. At best we hope to serve also as an inspiration and enabler for our partners. Show how working with us can strengthen their sustainability programs, our ability to cooperate brings about new possibilities, and how our transparency and willingness to develop can advance both their operations as well as their image.
We’re not looking for quick wins, but rather long-term, mutually profitable partnerships. That’s what we base our operations and codes of conduct on.
