NICE is a new and ambitious Nordic partnership initiative with the overall objective to lead the Nordic fashion industry towards a stronger focus on responsible, ethical, and sustainable production.

NICE includes a number of projects and partners across the Nordic countries – the Nordic fashion industry being the focal point of the initiative. NICE is currently in its start-up phase and will officially kick off in November 2008.

Purpose
The overall objective of the initiative is to lead the Nordic fashion industry towards a stronger focus on responsible, ethical, and sustainable production.

NICE will contribute to this ambition by:
• Providing the Nordic fashion industry and educational institutions with knowledge, reliable services and tools for implementation of social and environmental initiatives
• Promoting the Nordic fashion industry as working towards a more responsible, ethical, and sustainable production
• Providing advice and recommendations in relation to the fashion industry and social and environmental responsibility

Partners collaborating on NICE
The partners collaborating on NICE has formed a network organization named Nordic Fashion Association (NFA). NFA and the partners collaborating on NICE are:
• Swedish Fashion Council
• Oslo Fashion Week
• Icelandic Fashion Council
• Helsinki Design Week
• Danish Fashion Institute

In order to obtain an equal partnership and collaboration across the Nordic countries, NFA will set-up a Board of Directors, consisting of a member from each of the partnering institutions. The Board of Directors will appoint a project manager responsible for the overall management of NICE.

Besides NFA, a number of institutions, organizations, companies and educational institutions are collaborating and participating in the different projects that NICE consists of. These project teams will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the different projects.

From Denmark, the following partners are participating:
• Danish Centre for CSR, Danish Commerce and Companies Agency
• Copenhagen Business School, CBS-CSR Center
• Danish Chamber of Commerce (DE)
• Danish Ethical Trading Initiative (DIEH)

All Nordic fashion companies are invited and strongly encouraged to participate in NICE projects. In order to accommodate and include the Nordic fashion companies in the projects, an advisory board will be set up that will advise and inspire the board of Directors. Besides the advisory board consisting of members from Nordic fashion companies, a panel of experts will be set up. The panel of experts will consist of experts within the field of CSR, business development and fashion. The panel of experts will have an advisory role in relation to the Board of Directors.
