Dudino Cares About Sustainability !


At Dudino Kids Footwear, we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment and society through our sustainable practices and responsible sourcing processes. Our dedication to sustainability is evident in our sourcing operations that ensure that our operations meet the highest social and environmental standard of Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), BCI(Better Cotton Initiative) and Sedex.

1. What is BSCI? 

BSCI stands for the Business Social Compliance Initiative, a leading global business-driven initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in their supply chains. BSCI aims to enhance social performance, promote workers' rights, and improve environmental management within factories and production facilities.

2. Why BSCI Certification Matters?

BSCI certification is crucial for our commitment to sustainability. It ensures that our products are manufactured under fair working conditions, with respect for human rights, and a focus on environmental protection. By adhering to BSCI standards, we help create a better future for the communities involved in our supply chain and minimize the ecological footprint of our products.

3. Fair Working Conditions:

BSCI certification guarantees that the rights of workers involved in the production process are respected and protected. These rights include fair wages, reasonable working hours, safe and hygienic working conditions, and the freedom to join trade unions.

4. Child Labor-Free Production:

As a company dedicated to children's well-being, we strictly condemn the use of child labor. BSCI certification ensures that no child labor is involved at any stage of our footwear production.

We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce within our supply chain. BSCI guidelines support gender equality and the prohibition of discrimination, promoting an environment where everyone's rights are respected and upheld. 

6. Environmental Responsibility:

Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond the social aspect. We adhere to environmental best practices, focusing on reducing our ecological impact throughout the our sourcing process. This includes minimizing waste generation, promoting energy efficiency, and using eco-friendly materials whenever possible.

BSCI promotes transparency and accountability within the supply chain. We actively engage with our suppliers and partners to ensure they share our values and maintain responsible practices. By fostering open communication, we can collectively work towards continuous improvement and positive change.

11. What is the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI)?

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a non-profit organization that promotes and supports more sustainable cotton production. BCI aims to elevate the overall sustainability standards of the cotton industry by embracing better practices from social, environmental, and economic perspectives.

The main objectives of BCI include:

  • Reducing Environmental Impact: BCI encourages more sustainable cotton production by optimizing water usage, reducing the use of harmful chemicals, and preserving biodiversity.

We take pride in having BCI certificated sourcing for Dudino Kids Footwear. This certification indicates that the cotton used in our products is produced under more sustainable conditions, and the positive impacts throughout the cotton production process are monitored. It assures our customers of our commitment to environmental and social responsibilities.

12. What is Sedex?
