Social responsibility index


Further to my post ten days ago calling for businesses to have a sign like this at their entrance, what is manufacturers labeled their product with these for measurements.

Think back to the 1990s and the sweatshop campaigns. While I am sure sweatshops continue today there is no easy way for consumers to be informed at the time of making a purchase.

As a consumer I want to make the right purchase. As a supporter of independent small business I see that this group has the best opportunity to be seen to be doing the right thing in terms of social responsibility. If only the government would introduce a system of transparent measurement and reporting on social responsibility measures.

I’d like to see labels like the one above on all items so we can stop supporting business not doing their bit for the community and the evironment.
