Sustainability


We feel responsible, so we work every day on implementing and improving processes which ensure better and safer working conditions for our customers and the workers who make our work clothing. We not only want our professionals to get the best out of their working days, we also want the same for workers in the textile industry. This is not merely a dream and vision of the future, it is a goal which we are taking the necessary steps to achieve today. Tricorp works together with the Fair Wear Foundation and more than 70 partners in the CSR covenant on Corporate Social Responsibility.

    IMVO-convenant

    Dutch child assistance fund

    Tricorp has committed itself to the Dutch Child Assistance Fund (Nationaal Fonds Kinderhulp) via a strategic partnership. This charity helps children who grow up in poverty in the Netherlands. Every child is entitled to be part of society and enjoy life, but unfortunately, that is not so simple for 1 in 8 children in the Netherlands, who grow up in poverty and feel excluded. The Child Assistance Fund helps them by offering laptops, bicycles, help with practicing sports, education, days out and swimming lessons, among other things. “We decided to commit ourselves to the Child Assistance Fund as partner because we fully support this charity, and want to contribute to the development and happiness of young people. They have their whole lives ahead of them, and no child should be excluded because of poverty,” according to commercial director Joost Dekker. Tricorp is supporting the Child Assistance Fund with financial help, clothing, advice, manpower, promotional vehicles, and days out.
