SEDEX SMETA Pillar 2 for PAW

We are pleased to inform that PAW received a positive opinion is a SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) audit and was included on SMETA 2 Pillar list.

What does it mean?

Sedex is a non-profit organisation that conducts the Smeta audit – a standard which imposes ETI Base Code (Ethical Trading Initiative) and environmental requirements. Fulfilment of that standard in a way opens the doors to cooperation with international companies.

PAW, having intensely worked for 25 years, achieved a stable business position on the market and managed to develop its social and environmental policy. The purpose of the audit was to evaluate the company’s ethical standards and corporate social responsibility.

The report, among other things, included information on compliance with the labour law, conditions, workplace safety, freedom of religion and freedom to express political views, counteracting discrimination, compliance with local labour law, dialogue between the Employer and the Employees and rational waste management.

On the basis of an analysis of comprehensive documentation, as well as  anonymous interviews conducted with our Employees, our company received a positive opinion from our customers and the certifying body.

We wish to thank our Employees for taking part in the audit. The requirements posed by SEDEX SMETA constitute a regular work standard at PAW, and the fact that we received a positive opinion from the audit was just a formality. That is why our company has become more transparent and has further improved the level of management.
