Celebrating significant growth and development at the ICTI Ethical Toy Program
2018 and 2019 was a period of investment, growth, and development for the ICTI Ethical Toy Program (IETP). With the support of our members, our global community of stakeholders, and our dedicated team much has been achieved, demonstrating the power and impact of collaboration.
The drivers of our success were the strong relationships and synergies between IETP, the factories, brands, retailers, and civil society groups that share the same vision: to build better lives for workers and stable, resilient, and trusted supply chains.
Join us to reflect on and celebrate the achievements we have accomplished together. Without the support and involvement from stakeholders like you, these would not be possible.
