We work in close partnership with talented artisans and craftspeople in the industry. We produce our products in different regions of the world depending on the raw materials and the know-how required. Every ferm LIVING product is made by skilled and dedicated craftsmen and women with whom we work closely in partnerships built on mutual respect.
Upholstered and wooden furniture, metal products, wallpaper and a portion of our textiles are produced in Europe, in countries that include the Baltics, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and Turkey, while we collaborate with suppliers in India and China on the production of textiles, glassware, ceramics and lighting. We are committed to ethical and responsible business practices, as reflected in our Code of Conduct which is based on the UN Global Compact’s Ten Guiding Principles.
All suppliers must comply with this CoC to promote responsible business practices. Taking social responsibility in our supply chain is a mission we take seriously. Being members of Amfori enables us to have all our key suppliers BSCI audited. In 2023, we aim to have 40% of all our suppliers rated as ‘Responsible Suppliers’. To us, this means a supplier that has acted on social responsibility by working with initiatives or certifications as BSCI, SA 8000 or FSC™ or GOTS, which all have high standards for social responsibility and making sure that human rights and fair working conditions are upheld.
Throughout our supply chain, we nurture long-lasting relationships based on mutual value-creation, respectful behaviour and transparent communication. We want to open our world for everyone to be inspired by, and by sharing supplier and production stories, we invite people behind the scenes and into the journey of our products and our work with responsibility.
ferm LIVING is committed to ensuring the safety of its products. To achieve this, the company will continue to research and stay up to date on all chemical and product safety laws and regulations in collaboration with accredited consultants in 2023. To proactively address safety concerns, the company has developed checklists that are used from the first developmental step. These checklists help to ensure that safety is taken into consideration at every stage of the product development process. Additionally, a system platform is used to maintain and assure accurate documentation both internally and externally, further ensuring that safety is a top priority.
