Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Disney response to IPE report on environmental impacts of product manufacturing

Author: Disney, Published on: 19 September 2016

…The Institute of Public and Environmental  Affairs  (IPE) inquired if seven facilities were suppliers to Disney…

  • Of  the  seven  facilities  that  IPE  mentioned  in  their  report,  four  are  not  authorized  to  produce  Disney‐branded  products  for  Disney  or  its  licensees  and  vendors.
    • Three  facilities  have  never  been  authorized  by  Disney:
      • 爱德士鞋业(山东)有限公司(Atechs  Footwear  Shangdong)      
      • 南通爱德士鞋业有限公司(Nantong  Atechs  Footwear  Co.,  Ltd),  and
      • 万兴(佛冈)玩具有限公司  (Million  Best  Toys  Co.,  Ltd.)      
    • One  facility  has  not  been  authorized  by  Disney  since  2009      
      • 爱德士鞋业(江苏)有限公司(Atechs  Jiangsu)   
    • …[I]t  is  not  unusual  for  facilities  to  claim  some  relationship  with  Disney  even  if  such  a  relationship  never  existed.  In  such  cases  Disney  may  take  additional  steps  to  help  ensure  that  these  facilities  refrain  from  making  such  claims.  
  • Three  facilities  are  currently  authorized  to  produce  Disney--‐branded  product  for  multiple  licensees  or  vendors.  
    • The  facilities  are:          
      • 晋江市汉鑫服装织造有限公司  (Jin  Jiang  Han  Xin  Garments  &  Weaving  Co.,  Ltd.)
      • 晋江市七彩狐服装织造有限公司(Qicaihu  Garments  Weaving  Co.,  Ltd.)          
      • 华纺股份有限公司  (Huafang  Co.,  Ltd.),
    • For  these  three  facilities,  Disney  is  in  the  process  of  reaching  out  to  the  licensees  and  vendors  involved  to  discuss  ways  in  which  these  environmental  issues  can  be  addressed.    

…Disney…encourage  BHRRC  and  any  other  party  to  contact  us  directly  before  releasing  public  reports  so  that  we  may  work  together  to  resolve  any  issues  in  a  timely  and  constructive  manner.
