Every year, the state of Berlin spends billions of euros on construction materials, work clothes and computers. It is mainly looked at the price. The fact that natural stones come from developing countries has hardly played a role so far. This shall be changed now.
The Deutschlandfunk Kultur editor Josephine Schulz visited and interviewed BESCO amongst others for her contribution “Berlin will keine Pflastersteine aus Kinderarbeit“.
BESCO has been a pioneer in the sustainable, fair and green sourcing of natural stones for many years and has been supporting WiN = WiN Fair Stone since 2009. All our Asian products are guaranteed to be free of child labor and have been manufactured in compliance with working conditions as defined by the International Labor Organization (ILO) ). This is not only checked by our permanent inspectors in Asia, but also by the independent auditors of WiN = WiN Fair Stone.
