The word « ETHIC » means for me in logistic, to use transportation solution helping to reduce the distances from our factories and our customer warehouses and to reduce our CO2 emissions. That means to use multi-modal transport for our deliveries: a slow vessel for our pre-routing in Europe and a rail-road delivery to our customer warehouse, for example. For our USA orders, it means organize direct deliveries from China to USA to avoid any transit in Europe.

Every day, we keep in mind that our responsibility is to act and improve social conditions and standard of living of men and women working in our supply chain.
Integrity, support and control remain key points for us.
That part of our business is made in cooperation with 30 factories, located in 8 different countries. In China, main supply zone of Anaïk, there are about 5.200 men and women that can work today in better conditions thanks to our implication since 10 years now and thanks to active cooperation of factories bosses.
"During two years of cooperation, we improved a lot in our quality management system; we really appreciate Anaik’s guide and help!
Through the Sedex audit, we gradually increased the social security proportion for our employees, and accordingly improved their welfare.
In the other hand, , we work on and focus more on the help-the-poor program, meanwhile we hired some workers from distressed area, and make sure they are having better life quality than before!
We sincerely would like to keep and have deeper cooperative relations with Anaik, we believe to achieve a win-win situation. And we also hope to contribute to our society together with Anaik !"
As per what we did for social audits, we now wish to minimize our impact on environment. From 2017, we are starting an environment audit program to map and share good practices of our material and components factories.
“On the initiative of ANAIK and other members of Réseau Alliances, we launched a working group dedicated to environment audits.
Through this approach, ANAIK demonstrates again their commitment to a more sustainable development and to implement buying practices more respectful of Human Being and Environment.”

We keep researching best compromises in term of transportation way and routing to generating as less CO2 as possible. In particular, we reinforce our use of rail transportation from China directly to France, and also our post-routing to USA.
In 2016, a CO2 emission calculator has been integrated in our XERP. It’s a way to make our collaborators and customers more sensitive to research optimal solutions
To design, to innovate, and to renew our offer is at core of our business. As to design an exemplary product is difficult and costly, we propose our customers a custom-made approach allowing working on one axe or more to eco-design products as per their brand strategy, targets of the promotions and budget limitation.

Carrier of a relational message but also vector of values, object that we are offering as a gift must be in full adequacy with values expected by market but also in full adequacy with brand values : whatever they are altruists, societal, and experiential.
Anaïk has adopted very early an innovating approach in the conception of their product range. Pioneer in implementing CSR promotional items without forgetting innovation, they combine with relevance and subtility, trading, respect of environment, ethic, traceability, modernity and innovation.
Wealth of eco-design promotional items, connected gifts, custom-made, 3D-printed that Anaïk is able to propose make us realize that innovation can be combined with societal responsibility.
Transparency, integrity, security ! Anaïk has set up a traceability process on their supply chain, from material production to final customer delivery.
