Brav Norway AS (formerly Swix Sport AS) has been a member of the Ethical Trade Initiative since 2007. Through our membership, we want to and continuously strengthen our efforts to improve working and environmental conditions in our supply chain. As a member of IEH, we have chosen to commit ourselves to work actively on improvements in the chain and we report annually to IEH on our development with ethical trade work.
The Ethical Trading Initiative (IEH) aims to promote responsible supply chains so that international trade contributes to safeguarding human and labor rights, sustainable development and sound environmental management.
IEH is a member organization and Norway's largest network of companies, organizations and public enterprises that work in a committed and systematic manner to ensure sustainable supply chains. Together with the sister organizations Danish Initiative for Ethical Trade (DIEH) in Denmark and the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) in England, IEH is one of the world's largest networks in the area.
Being a member of IEH involves tackling challenges in your own supply chain, and reporting openly about status and progress in the work. Membership commits to continuous improvement work and gives access to courses, networks and exchange of experience, seminars and advice. IEH is a driving force for ethical trade, both towards the members, but also for the Norwegian authorities to facilitate ethical trade in general in the private and public sector.
Norwegian Church Aid took the initiative to establish IEH in 2000, together with the main organization Virke (formerly HSH), LO and Coop Norge. IEH is formally independent of, but cooperates closely with like-minded organizations nationally and internationally and with local expertise in many producer countries.
