Code of conduct

Logo KOBA Vision

We help visually impaired people to maintain or regain their daily independent life.

Visually impaired people come first in everything we do. We are dedicated to improve the quality of life of our users and customers, and to enable them to live independent daily lives.

For us, quality of life is closely linked to personal freedom and independence. That’s why we help visually impaired people maintain or regain their freedom. To achieve this goal now and in the future, we focus on innovation and outstanding technology. We try to see the world through the eyes of our users and customers, and we pursue this aim with respect, courage and commitment.

KOBA Vision is dedicated to offer visually impaired and blind users unique user-friendly but well thought out products, matched by an outstanding service.

KOBA Vision has set up a code of conduct in order to spread KOBA Vision’s mission and position to suppliers. Suppliers need to understand the DNA of KOBA Vision and the social responsibility we take to build unique products for the visually impaired and blind.

The way how we care about our users and customers needs to be reflected in the way how we deal with our suppliers and how our suppliers deal with their employees. KOBA Vision seeks to do long-term business relationships with suppliers. Relationships are based on the principle of fair and honest dealings at all times. The relationship is open-minded and straight.
