Our mission at MAIUM is to get people out of their cars and onto their bicycles because it is better for their health and well-being, our planet, and society. With rain falling 130 days a year and more bikers than people in Amsterdam, we at MAIUM continuously seek to create rainwear that keeps you dry on your daily commute. In doing so, we aim to create a fair working environment with diversity and inclusiveness for each and every individual in our value chain. At MAIUM, we are a family, and everything we do is done with care and concern for our employees' well-being. We are an equal opportunity employer and we are committed to building a team that feels that they are valued in the workplace. Everyone can make a difference!
In 2022 RethinkRebel concluded in their research that 75% of our production partners are BSCI members to assure fair, safe, and healthy working conditions. To ensure that activities across the supply chain are conducted in an ethical, traceable, and transparent manner, MAIUM has adopted the OECD ‘Due Diligence’ methodology and supports the Conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). By the end of 2023 MAIUM has an own Code of Conduct (COC) by this methodology which is signed by all their suppliers. Specific themes we want to address in our COC are: Discrimination and gender, Child labor, Forced labor, Freedom of association, Living wage, Safety and health in the workplace, Raw materials, Water pollution and use of chemicals, water and energy, Animal welfare, working hours, ethical trade, sexual harassment, and grievance mechanisms.
In 2022 we have performed an independent risk assessment of our current supply chain, checking on all ESG topics (environment, social and governance). Based on this research the most material topics are: fair remuneration and protection of the environment.
