To successfully manage sustainability, the s.Oliver Group has set standards and relies on clearly defined systems and processes for monitoring and reaching the adopted goals and targets. Measures and progress are regularly monitored. Publications are available for download here.

Roadmap and Progress Report


As a member of the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles we are collaborating with companies, business associations, NGOs, labor unions, standard organisations and the government to work towards improving the conditions of global textile production. All members commit to individual target setting within the categories defined by the Partnership, and regularly report on their progress using a standardized template. Information about the Partnership and s.Oliver Group’s Roadmap and Progress Report are available here.

Modern Slavery Statement


Every year, with our public Modern Slavery Statement we are reaffirming our strong position against any form of forced labour, human trafficking or modern slavery, and explain our standards and prevention systems as well as the progress of implementation.

Code of Conduct for the Procurement of Goods

Compliance with the s.Oliver ‘Code of Conduct for the Procurement of Goods’ is a prerequisite for commencing and/or continuing a business relationship with a supplier. Our Code of Conduct regulates, among other things, the clear prohibition of child labour and forced labour, as well as guidelines on wages, working hours, and health and safety at the workplace. It is based on the core labour standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). The Code also requires our suppliers to respect fundamental principles of environmental protection and animal welfare.

Animal Welfare Policy

The s.Oliver Group hasn’t used real fur or real fur trimmings since 2006. We have also banned exotic skins, angora, mohair and live-plucked down. These standards and further commitments are codified in our Animal Welfare Policy.
