We possess a strong passion for detail, quality, service and the ethical conduct of commerce. Understanding that our business has an environmental but moreover, a social impact, we see it as our responsibility to care. Therefore, we commit ourselves to care about working conditions in the countries where our products are manufactured. Aerion found new ways to define and share responsibility by monitoring
compliance and evaluating our relationships with suppliers, manufacturers and their corresponding governments.
Our policies regarding any violation or abuse of human rights, child-labor laws and factory-safety standards, are strictly set. The most promising approach to sustainable sourcing is to work with our customers, suppliers and industry partners to further adopt these standards.
„Sustainable support does not only include the improvement of social and environmental standards but also investment in educational programmes.“

OUR CODE OF ETHICS
The climate change physically and financially affects the sourcing and delivery of goods and services in our industry. By monitoring the use of resources, such as energy, water and raw materials, we are committed to using resources wisely and efficiently and reducing waste generation within our own operations.
Our approach to source sustainably is to work closely with our customers, suppliers and industry partners to determine best practices and standards. We also provide our customers with sustainable design, manufacturing, product and packaging options, to meet customer requests for sustainably-sourced materials and products with reduced environmental impact from well-managed factories.
We constantly strive to improve our own environmental and social performance, to enhance the sustainability of supply chains and communities across our network.
Consequently, we consistently assess our current state against our sustainability goals. This supports in setting aspirational targets against and /or take actions to meet those targets.
