IETP announces new assessment module to help companies achieve their environmental ambitions

Published on: 16th May 2022

The ICTI Ethical Toy Program says the module offers a fast and low-cost solution for achieving supply chain environmental oversight. 

Today, the ICTI Ethical Toy Program (IETP) has announced the launch of an Environmental Assessment Module, a new online tool to facilitate climate action for the global supply chain. IETP’s Environmental Assessment (EA) is a quick and cost-effective solution companies can use to gain oversight of the positive and negative environmental impacts of their business operations and those of their suppliers.

The Environmental Assessment can be implemented globally and offers a new way for businesses in any industry to establish and advance their Environmental Strategy. Through clear, consistent, and consolidated information, businesses of any size can benchmark their supply chain partners and identify risks and opportunities. This assessment will enable companies to better understand the environmental performance of their global supply chain and to report on it. Businesses can leverage this information to develop action plans for their sustainability strategy and join forces with the rest of the world in combatting climate change.

“IETP is committed to meeting the needs of our members, together with them we’ve created the IETP Environmental Assessment,” says Carmel Giblin, president & CEO of the ICTI Ethical Toy Program (IETP). “The objectives of this development from the very start were to enable companies to collect relevant data, at scale and at low cost. I am delighted to be able to say today that we have achieved that objective successfully. All companies of every size want to play their part in combatting climate change and I am confident this new tool will help companies meet their own objectives, the expectations of their customers and the requirements of regulators globally.”

IETP’s Environmental Assessment Module is available to all businesses from any industry starting on the 16th of May, for more information about the environmental areas covered, cost per assessment, or for a sample of the report, please contact todd.merton@ethicaltoyprogram.org, or click here.
