Code of Conduct

We at OCEANSAPART are firmly committed to making high-quality products in ways that respect people and protect the environment. This Code of Conduct helps to ensure these objectives and serves as the basis for all of our operations and business relationships.

Our Code of Conduct applies worldwide. It obligates the Rise Up Fashion GmbH, its organisational units and employees in the same manner as all our production, logistics and sales partners and their employees who are involved in the value chain.

OCEANSAPART seeks to work with partners that promote the continual improvement of working conditions throughout the supply chain. Our Code of Conduct is based on the International Bill of Human Rights, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and its Follow-up and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. Legal and regulatory compliance wherever we operate is the basis of our actions.

Our aim and our expectation of our business partners is to respect the principles outlined in this Code to the highest extent while ensuring legal compliance in each country of operation. This is especially the case where there are conflicts between local law and the standards in this Code. If local law goes beyond this Code, the higher standard shall apply.

Implementation and Monitoring of the Code of Conduct

It is important to OCEANSAPART and the Rise Up Fashion GmbH that the principles outlined in this Code are implemented across our value chain.

We expect suppliers to:

  • Uphold these standards in their own operations
  • Use their best efforts to implement this Code with their own suppliers and subcontractors
  • Make this Code available, in the local language, to all employees

OCEANSAPART and the Rise Up Fashion GmbH will support its suppliers to fulfil the standards set out in this Code. Our aim is continuous improvement. We will only end a business relationship as a last resort if a partner or supplier is unable or unwilling to improve after a reasonable time.

We reserve the right to conduct audits or assessments for the purpose of monitoring the standards laid out in this Code, and take appropriate steps if there is reason for concern.

We expressly invite anyone with concerns or knowledge of infringements of this Code to contact us anonymously if preferred via the following email address:
