CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY (CSR)
So what does CSR actually mean? CSR is the official acronym for ‘Corporate Social Responsibility‘, meaning that a corporation is committing itself to a sustainable economic development – on one’s own authority, by choice and beyond any legal regulations. For that matter a specific focus is set on the responsibilities towards the actual environment as well as on the key markets, towards commercial partners (such as manufacturers e.g) and employees.
IRIEDAILY FRIENDLY SUPPORTS
As a company based in Berlin Kreuzberg, we consider it our responsibility to actively participate in local projects in addition to supporting sponsoring, as well as to help supra-regional anti-racist projects and offer apprenticeships.
One example is Aktionsbündnis Brandenburg, for which we produced “Schöner leben ohne Nazis” T-Shirts, which are sold on the website and at events. The proceeds go to 100% to projects against right.
For the local football club FSV Hansa 07 in Kreuzberg we have already produced several jerseys protesting racism. We are also happy to support Hansa with merchandise and equipment for the volunteers!
But also the refugee aid project “Kreuzberg hilft” and the Berlin BMX Park Mellowpark belong to the numerous projects supported by IRIEDAILY. Another interesting project, which we support, is the initiative Radbahn Berlin. It is engaged in the development of safe cycle paths in Berlin.
All these projects are regularly supported by us in the form of donations of money or clothing.
Some donation projects are rather small and discreet. We donate clothes directly to an aid organisation for Tibetan schoolchildren or support a private project of the Berlin photographer Daniel Reiter, who supports young skateboarders in Addis Abada, Ethiopia with textiles and skateboard hardware.
Due to our general ethical and personal stance, our beliefs and entrepreneurial ideas, it basically is just a corollary that we’ve now joined the Fair Wear Foundation. The Fair Wear Foundation addressed itself to the task to provide and care about accurate working conditions and operating processes in the actual places of production within the textile industry.
For over twenty years, a part of IRIEDAILY’s collections is manufactured in Portugal, and the relationship to particular manufacturers has been a very close and trusting one ever since. Over the years manufacturing facilities in China were added, to whom a straight and long-term collaboration was established as well.
Our aim is, with the help of FWF, to allow the best possible and most transparent way of communication and exposition of our production processes for both – our manufacturers and clients alike. IRIEDAILY is a member of the Fear Wear Foundation since 2016, now we have made it from beginner status to leader status in only two and a half years. We are proud of this achievement and looking forward to continue the work with the FWF. The permanent control and continuation of the fair working conditions in our factories are our goals for the future.
