World: GHIN members sign the EDRA/GHIN Code of Practice on Responsible and Sustainable Supply Chains

Following the signing of EDRA Code of Practice on Responsible and Sustainable Supply Chains for the Home Improvement Industry in February 2019, EDRA/GHIN are pleased to announce that the Code of Practice has also been signed by the GHIN Board during the 7th Global DIY Summit in Dublin.

The Code applies to home improvement companies around the world who are members of EDRA/GHIN. It sets a common standard across members’ supply chains, with a focus on fair working conditions, protecting human rights and environmental best practice.

John Herbert, General Secretary of EDRA/GHIN, commented “I am very happy that the GHIN Board Members have now also signed the EDRA/GHIN Code of Practice as I believe that taking responsible action to protect the environment and ensuring fair working conditions is a global issue and can only be tackled collectively and universally.”

The Code of Practice is an initiative of the DIY Platform, in which EDRA/GHIN members collaborate on sustainability challenges within their shared supply chains.
