We are committed to ensuring that all dealings with our suppliers, from the point of search and selection, through to supply and payment, are conducted in accordance with the guiding principles of responsible and ethical trading. At a minimum, our suppliers and sites must comply with the requirements of all local and international environmental laws and regulations, including having all necessary permits. Additionally, they must meet all relevant XXV environmental standards.

Customers of XXV can be assured that the people who are involved in the process of making our products are treated fairly and are not subjected to unsafe or unhygienic working conditions. We strongly believe that by having ethical standards in place, employee wellbeing, productivity, and quality, are all significantly improved.

Our Ethical Trading Policy underlines the latest requirements we as a company have in place to fulfil ethical trading. Our policy is regularly reviewed, to ensure it remains responsive to the expectations of our stakeholders and industry practice.
