4 Code of Conduct and Manual for the Textile and Fashion Industry s Principle 11: Animal Ethics and Welfare 3 Principle 11 | Many fashion businesses have made a conscious ethical decision not to use real animal fur (e.g., fax, sable, mink, and rabbit) or exotic and wild-caught animal species (e.g., snake, crocodile, and ostrich). We recognize this choice, and we acknowledge that other businesses have chosen to take a different path. In businesses where animals are used in labor and/or in the production (fur, wool, etc.), such animals must be fed and treated with dignity and respect and no animal must deliberately be harmed nor exposed to pain in their life span. Taking the lives of animals must at all times be conducted using the quickest and the least painful and non-traumatic (not in the vision of other animals) method available and approved by national and acknowledged veterinarians and only conducted by trained personnel. What We do not tolerate the maltreatment of animals, and animals must be cared for and protected from harm. We do not support the use of any endangered species listed in 3 Reproduction of Principle 11 contents NICE Code of Conduct and Manual for the Fashion and Textile Industry at the Nordic Fashion Association; Nordic Initiative Clean and Ethical NICE and Global Compact ( 2012 , p. 69). 54 M.

the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. We recommend following the guidelines in the European Convention for the protection of animals kept for farming purposes. Why Animals are sentient beings, and it is the responsibility of humans to ensure that they have a life worth living. We do not support the usage of down and feather plucked from living birds. The maltreatment of animals can cause severe reputa- tional damages in relation to retailers, consumers, and other stakeholders. Animal activists are very persistent in their work and have a record of great in fl uence on decision-makers.

How Have an animal treatment policy that clearly states that garments containing animal-derived products are produced using abundant species that have been treated in accordance with international animal welfare standards, as well as animal welfare standards laid down by Europe law. Clearly label garments containing parts of animal origin as such, including the name of the part used (such as leather or natural fur) to ensure that consumers are not deliberately or unintentionally mis-sold goods they do not wish to purchase.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
