Compliance at schleich®
At schleich®1 we help every child enjoy the fun of creative storytelling. Each of our products is made to the highest standards of quality, authenticity, and accuracy to detail, so as to unlock the limitless potential of kids’ imaginations.
In a constantly changing world, we have a unique responsibility to both ensure the wellbeing of our employees and to protect our children and the world they grow up in. Our success as a company is built on our integrity and sense of responsibility. These values are the basis for how we treat each other, our customers, our business partners, and the general public.
We strive to not only act in accordance with the law but also to meet our responsibilities to society, at both a local and global level. We want to work together to achieve our goals as a business and help our children develop their individual personalities and the ability to think for themselves.
Compliance is more than just a word. For me, it’s an ethical promise that allows consumers, customers, suppliers, society, and other stakeholders to place their trust in schleich® as a brand, as an employer, and as a source of inspiration for limitless play and creativity.
