Social & Environmental Responsibilities
At veloToze, we believe in creating smart products that help cyclists fully embrace the elements of nature through innovation using new techniques and materials. We are dedicated to designing and producing every product with minimum overall environmental impact whenever possible. veloToze is fully committed to fulfilling our social and environmental responsibilities; we expect the same level of commitment from our employees, suppliers, and business partners.
We believe ethical business is good business, thus we conduct our business with integrity, honesty, and transparency. We understand the importance of implementing robust ethical guidelines and a code of conduct that governs the behavior of employees, suppliers, and business partners.
veloToze work with suppliers that align with our social responsibility standards. Our suppliers need to provide a safe and healthy work environment; offer fair remuneration, benefits, and opportunities for all employees. We visit our suppliers during the initial vendor selection process and evaluate them regularly to ensure continuous improvements.
Cycling is an outdoor sport; we love both cycling and the outdoors. veloToze is committed to minimizing our environmental impact and carbon footprint to promote long-term sustainability for future generations.
veloToze will strive to exceed all applicable environmental laws, regulations, and standards. We use recycled and recyclable materials for packaging whenever possible to minimize our environmental footprint. We implement measures to minimize water and energy consumption in our operations. At veloToze, we provide showers and changing facilities to encourage our employees to cycle or use public transportation as prefer mode of commuting whenever possible. Our company motto is "2 wheels are better than 4".
We work with suppliers and vendors who share our commitment to environmental sustainability. Our partners must integrate environmentally responsible practices into their business operations and product development. Reduce energy and resource consumption, minimize waste generation, and promote recycling and reuse. We prioritize products and services with a lower environmental impact and consider factors such as energy efficiency and recyclability during the design and procurement process. We will only work with suppliers who take proactive steps to prevent pollution, including properly handling, storing, and disposing of hazardous materials.
At veloToze, we truly believe cycling is a global sport across all races, genders, ages, ethnicities, religious backgrounds, sexual orientations, physical abilities, or socioeconomic statuses. Once you are on the bicycle, we simply call each other "cyclists".
We recognize the transformative power of cycling, not only as a means of transportation and exercise but also as a way to foster camaraderie and create an active community. Today, we reaffirm our commitment to championing cycling inclusion and embracing diversity within our brand and the cycling world at large. veloToze will continue to do our part by supporting junior development programs, para-athletes, and grassroots events in addition to our professional male and female international teams.
