      Partnership with Trees for All

      For every Heartbeat Fit and Heartbeat Safe activation, we plant trees together with Trees for All, to compensate our products’ CO2-eq emissions in the use phase. In 2022, the CTOUCH team planted trees in Eersel, close to our head office in the Netherlands. We also donated trees to help the restoration of parkland in Spain.

      Fair international supply chain

      We consider our suppliers as key partners in achieving our sustainable goals. To boost the sustainability and transparency of our international supply chain:

      • We consulted the CSR Risk Check to identify potential CSR risks.
      • Our key suppliers signed the Social Responsibility Employment Statement to ensure that slavery and child labour do no occur in any part of our supply chain.
