The Fair Factories Clearinghouse (FFC), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting factory compliance through the sharing of factory audit information announced that four leading companies are participating in the FFC's Sharing Platform.

Levi Strauss & Co, Nike Inc, Nordstrom, and Abercrombie & Fitch have all committed to joining the FFC as “Sharing” members at the launch, scheduled for the first quarter of 2008.

The goal of the FFC is to provide brands and retailers with a scalable technology and organizational platform to facilitate non-competitive collaboration to improve working conditions within the supply chain.

Increased collaboration by brands and retailers will reduce audit fatigue and ultimately improve factory compliance on a range of issues including social and environmental standards and security.

“Facilitating collaboration between companies to improve factory conditions is one of the fundamental goals of the FFC,” said Kiku Loomis, FFC's Acting Executive Director.

“By choosing to participate in the FFC's pioneering Sharing Platform, these new members are helping us to build a community of companies willing to explore the potential for large-scale collaboration. All of our members are eagerly looking forward to the launch.”

Michael Kobori, Vice President, Supply Chain Social and Environmental Sustainability at Levi Strauss & Co. said, "Levi Strauss & Co. believes the FFC sharing platform is anexcellent tool enabling brands to reduce duplication in factory monitoring, focus brand and factory resources on remediation, and improve factory working conditions."
