For Life - Good Business Practices

Social accountability is an important factor in the selection of business partners in a global market place. For Life Social Responsibility certification is tailored to operators who want to either demonstrate their own social responsibility practices or ensure such practices along their supply chains to optimize supplier qualification processes.

Setting a good example and keep the trust of consumers, regulators and community through socially responsible practices

In today’s global business culture, ensuring social responsibility of global vendors is often outside the ability of many companies. The For Life programme offers annual third party inspection and certification of key social criteria by a highly qualified external verifier.

For Life certification confirms that good working conditions are provided as expressed in the ILO conventions, such as absence of prohibited child labour, non-discrimination, good working conditions and remuneration, health and safety aspects, reasonable working hours and social security coverage.
