ICS now includes 67 active multinational members!
ICS is an international sectoral initiative with the aim to enhance working conditions along global supply chains of its member retailers and brands.
ICS is composed of 67 multinational retailers and brands in the sectors of textile, retail, footwear, electronics and furniture.
ICS members collaborate with common tools, to mutualize audits, contributing to the reduction of the ‘audit fatigue’ and share knowledge and best practices.
ICS members share thousands of factories and audits on the ICS database. ICS members only have access to the production sites they work with to ensure confidentiality.
The Handbook for factories is part of the ICS recent development of supporting tools and guidance for its members’ supplying factories and partners with the aim to sustainably enhance compliance.
This feature allows audited factories and related actors to upload documents on identified non-compliances after the audit (e.g. renewed permit, non-discrimination policy etc.) on the ICS database.
