Fair Wear Foundation Index

The Fair Wear Foundation is an independent multi-stakeholder initiative that aims to improve the working conditions in the textile industry around the world.

Working systematically towards fair working conditions

The independent organization Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) audits working conditions in the Asian companies that manufacture our products. This enables us to ensure that our suppliers meet our social responsibility requirements.

The Fair Wear Foundation publishes the results of their audit in the Brand Performance Check on its website: Brand Performance Check – VAUDE. The following reports detail our work with the FWF.
