Responsibility & compliance 

More than a matter of course at Litty!

The Litty Trading Company is aware of the special challenges involved in the global procurement of raw materials. In order to ensure compliance with human rights and minimise negative environmental impacts, a consistent risk management system has been developed and integrated into our management system. This increases transparency along the supply chain and systematically reduces negative influences. 

“We appreciate ourresponsibility in the global supply chains of our customers and suppliers and design our processes and activities with the conviction to integrate social and environmental standards.”
