WRAP calls for action to support 'Earth Day -2009'
13
Apr '09
Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) today announces its support for Earth Day by offering all staff members a half-day leave to work on the environmental project of their choice.

Since its founding in 2000, the WRAP Principles have contained a provision for protection of the environment, the only facility compliance program to combine labor and environmental protections into one certification scheme.

In the spirit of continuous improvement and its commitment to the environment, WRAP is developing an enhanced environmental program called “WRAPe” which is scheduled to launch this year.

“In our constant communication with facility owners, buyers, trade associations, governments, labor leaders, relevant NGOs and consumers, it is clear that the term 'sustainability' for the environment and the planet means action by us all,” WRAP's President and CEO, Mr. Steve Jesseph said.

“To support Earth Day, our offices will close at noon, April 22, to allow all staff members to work on the environmental project of their choice. We encourage all WRAP-certified facilities, and all those with a concern for the environment, to actively support Earth Day 2009.”

ABOUT WRAP:
Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, WRAP is an independent, non-profit organization and is dedicated to certifying factories that engaged in lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing.

Over the years, WRAP's comprehensive factory-based model helped it grow into the world's largest certification program for the apparel industry - over 1700 factories from around 60 countries participated in 2008 alone.

Today, WRAP's facility certification program is expanding even further, moving beyond just apparel to include all labor-intensive sectors, such as hotels, jewelry, furniture, construction and so on.
