International Housewares Association
The International Housewares Association (IHA), in response to an industry calling, has established a template for social responsibility issues. This template seeks to establish guidelines to ensure that working conditions in the housewares industry supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity and that business operations are ethical and environmentally responsible.
These guidelines provide tools that define a broad range of expectations without being overly specific in most cases. The scope of this document is also limited and may not capture every situation specific to your business' makeup. However, we hope that IHA members will use this document to help ensure that employees are respected, laws are followed, ethical standards are maintained and the environment is protected for generations to come.
Nike Environmental Design Tool
Nike is releasing its Environmental Apparel Design Tool with supporting data and methodology for public review. We hope by sharing this knowledge it will accelerate collaboration and encourage broader adoption of sustainability principles. The Tool evaluates waste, energy, toxics and water in materials and manufacturing, enabling companies to affect the most significant components of a product's environmental impact. It is a beginning; a building block from which something better can be created. We welcome your collaboration. The more that our industry works toward a common goal, the more likely we are to develop scalable, viable environmental solutions.
