Child labour (GRI 408)
Management approach child labour
Geberit’s exposure with respect to child labour is considered low because of its industry, business model and the countries in which business activities are carried out, its high level of vertical integration as well as its high quality requirements in the supply chain. Geberit commits itself to the protection of human rights in its Code of Conduct. Child labour is categorically rejected. The basic principles set out in the Geberit Code of Conduct for Suppliers explicitly include compliance with the ILO core labour standards for the exclusion of child labour.
