US retailer, Walmart, has accepted ICTI CARE onto its panel of approved third-party social compliance programs.

ICTI CARE, the ethical supply chain program for the global toy industry, features a program combining specialised audits, a certification scheme, capability building and worker well-being programs to help improve standards in the toy supply chain.

The ICTI CARE certification is available globally and is recognised by many toy brands, including the likes of Mattel, Crayola, Vivid, Toys R Us and more.

“We are delighted that ICTI CARE remains an approved third-party social compliance program for Walmart,” said Carmel Giblin, president and CEO of ICTI CARE.

“Walmart is the latest company to reaffirm a commitment to the ICTI CARE program to monitor social compliance and to source toys responsibly. Increased global acceptance of the ICTI CARE program helps us go further in delivering on our core objectives to improve the livelihoods of workers and reduce the audit burden on toy factories.”

In addition, Walmart has also joined ICTI CARE’s responsible toy sourcing membership program, Commited Brands Plus.
