About us

XertifiX stands for...
  • fairly produced natural stones from Asia 
  • better working conditions in factories and quarries
  • independent and unannounced controls in Asian production sites
  • The commitment to disadvantaged working families and their children
  • The support of affected child laborers

Our goal

Fair and humanely produced natural stones from Asia!

what we offer

Unique approach

In the factories (quarries and processing units), we first determine the status quo. Then the producers have the chance to improve gradually.

The label is available in two categories: XertifiX Standard and XertifiX PLUS.

Our retailers

How to combat child labor and slave labor? Prohibitions alone do not help. You have to take a much broader approach. Those who pay unfair wages, who ignore safety and health, who allow insecure working conditions, risk the sickness and the shortage of their employees, and promote the cycle of poverty, poor schooling and deficient professional perspectives.

In addition, child labor does not only harm the children themselves because they can not attend or complete school. If the supply of labor increases with children, the pressure on the wages of adults grows. They are more easily blackmailed with bottom wages.
