The ICTI Ethical Toy Program (formerly ICTI CARE Foundation) is the ethical supply chain program for global toy and entertainment industry.
The Ethical Toy Program was originally established by the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI) in 2004, but now exists as a separate, independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving ethical standards at toy factories around the world.
The Ethical Toy Program brings manufacturers, brands, retailers and civil society partners together to monitor, manage and fix social sustainability issues in the toy industry supply chain and to support the well-being of factory workers. It offers certification, assessment and monitoring tools which enable toy brands, retailers, manufacturers and industries associations to achieve responsible sourcing aims and drive standards.
Ethical Toy Program services include far-reaching and specialized audits, a robust ethical certification scheme, capability building and training programs, education, as well as peer-to-peer learning.
In addition to offices in Asia, Europe and North America, the program works with a global network of four independent audit firms to implement its certification program, and other industry partners on worker well-being.
Globally over 1,200 factories are Ethical Toy Program Certified, representing 650,000 workers in 13 countries.
