Ethical and fair economic life

Ethical Business

Modern societies around the world are mainly characterized  by the division of labor into economic activities. Through cooperation, values are created and then exchanged as products and services. In this exchange, it is essential that those creating the values be rewarded for their efforts with a fair income. This income must enable them, within their social environment, to achieve and to improve such results in the future, too. Therefore, the establishment of a worldwide cooperative network of value creation, accumulating values for fair interchange relations, is fundamental for a sustainable development of the economy.

Business Quality

The quality management systems of the SEKEM companies are certified according to the ISO 9001 standard. The requirements for this certification include the continuous improvement of control and of all quality relevant processes, as well as the enhancement of customer satisfaction. The standards ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 guide us in proper environmental as well as health and safety management. Any operational planning or product related decision is evaluated for its influence on SEKEMs sustainable development path and discussed in the weekly management meetings of all companies.

The establishment of a worldwide cooperative network of value creation, accumulating values for fair interchange relations, is fundamental for a sustainable development of the economy.

Sustainable Business

We measure success throughout all dimensions of the Sustainability Flower. This extensive performance evaluation framework used to monitor our key performance indicators is our way to incorporate the precautionary approach (Article 15 of the Rio Principles) into our business model.

Business Partnerships

Our ambitious goals can only be achieved by building long-lasting partnerships throughout our value chain. This is why we are committed to supporting our suppliers in satisfying our qualitative, social and environmental requirements and cooperate with peer companies to share practices and learn from each other.
