BSCI, SEDEX Social  Accountability Audits

Share

We are subject to several audits as a member of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) and the Suppliers Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX). As a member of BSCI, we are audited in topics such as social management systems, employee engagement, freedom of association and collective bargaining, prevention of discrimination, fair remuneration, OHS, prevention of precarious employment, prevention of forced and child labor, environmental protection, and ethical behavior. We fulfill these requirements in all countries we operate in accordance with the local laws and regulations. It is adhered to contracts signed with employees. Signed contracts comply with legislation in the countries where Arçelik operates and fully comply with local GDPR rules. We strictly follow, pay attention to, and commit to compliance.


In 2020, eight audits and four follow-up audits were carried out by third party independent auditing firms. These audits take place every year. However, due to COVID-19 related restrictions, four audits could not be conducted in 2020.


Please see the 2020 Sustainability Report for further details information on the audits findings.
