Brand Performance Check 2015

Deuter meets most of FWFs management system requirements and goes beyond several of them. Deuter has 97% of its supply chain under monitoring meeting the 90+% threshold required for members after their third year of membership.

Deuter has a stable, long-term relationships with all it's suppliers as well as significant leverage, which allows them to work effectively on improving working conditions. While continuous efforts are still needed, the company has strong systems in place to prevent and remediate excessive overtime. It has made considerable efforts to ensure subcontractors are part of its monitoring.

Deuter received one complaint in its last financial year, which was handled according to FWF's complaint procedure. Preventive steps were implemented.

Challenges remain to ensure independent worker representation as well as continous remediation at smaller subcontractor locations.

Score: 92 Percentage under monitoring: 97% Category: Leader
