As a family business we are naturally focused on next generations. The future of our children and grandchildren, and, the world in which they grow up. The world we care for. After all, we only have one! We are also aware of this on a daily basis as a company. Our societal impact, both from a social and an environmental point of view, must therefore be as positive as possible. For now, but especially for later. This social awareness is interwoven with our Code of Conduct, our membership of amfori BSCI and the fiberization of our textiles.
Code of Conduct
The core values of the brand Reece Australia are reflected in the Code of Conduct. This code describes the policy of Deventrade as a client and partner of several suppliers. With its mission and vision in mind, Deventrade focuses on three pillars: responsibility, integrity and high ethical standards. The company is committed to safe and fair working conditions and keeps monitoring those closely in the context of corporate social responsibility.
The Deventrade Group is a member of amfori, the leading global business association for open and sustainable trade. This means that we have committed ourselves to important values of corporate social responsibility. This of course should be self-evident, but unfortunately it is not always and everywhere. That is why we would like to tell you more about it.
Amfori improves the social performance of the supply chain via amfori BSCI. The association believes in a world where all trade delivers social, environmental and economic benefits for everyone. Amfori calls this Trade with Purpose.
As the leading global business association for open and sustainable trade, amfori brings together over 2,000 retailers, importers, brands and national associations representing a combined turnover of more than one trillion euros.
They offer their members a practical framework and world-class tools that enable them to manage the social and environmental performance of their supply chains and anticipate trends. Amfori also advocates for progressive policy and collaborates with high-level stakeholders to achieve common aims.
Their work enables organisations to enhance human prosperity, use natural resources responsibly and drive open trade globally. These are major challenges across the world which requires a collaborative effort to tackle. So, while amfori members can’t solve them on their own, together we can influence and drive positive change at scale.

Fiberization of our textile
The vast majority of our production concerns textiles. Material that consists of fibres, often blends of materials are used. The advantage of our textile is that it is suitable for reuse or fiberization. Not everything can be used for fiberization immediately, for example due to printing, badges and other personalization.
Beautiful new products can be made from these fibres, including high-quality raw materials for, among others, the automotive and non-woven industries. The ecological gain is demonstrated with the Life Cycle Analysis tool (LCA). Here, among other things, the consumption of water, energy and chemicals are mapped and the reduction of CO2 emissions is recorded.
