Laura Rubbo, Director, Responsible Governance and Supply Chain

"The Ethical Toy Program has made an important contribution to the toy industry in reducing the duplication of social compliance audits. Having a single audit protocol for the industry frees up resources to focus on continuous improvement.  In addition, the Ethical Toy Program performs a valuable function in coordinating action when concerns are raised about working conditions in factories.  We value their investigation, analysis, and communication in the factories used by our licensees or shared with other brands."
