Anfang der 1990er-Jahre wuchs das Bewusstsein für den Sinn fairer Verhaltensregeln. Damals wurden vor allem in der Bekleidungs- und Sportartikelindustrie freiwillige Verhaltenskodizes eingeführt. Die Marken verpflichteten sich, gewisse Standards einzuhalten.

Im Energieleben-Interview hat Mag.a Michaela Knieli von „die umweltberatung“ im Bezug auf Ökotextilien und schonend verarbeitete Mode besonders auf das Label „Global Organic Textile Standard“ hingewiesen.

Verhaltenskodizes

Die Verhaltenskodizes der Industrie sind schriftlich niedergelegte Richtlinien, die als Grundlage für das Verhalten transnationaler Konzerne dienen sollen. Sie gelten für das Verhalten gegenüber der Belegschaft, gegenüber staatlichen Stellen und in Sachen Umwelt.
Laut OECD: „von Unternehmen, Verbänden oder anderen juristischen Personen freiwillig eingegangene Verpflichtungen, in denen Standards und Grundsätze für die Durchführung von geschäftlichen Aktivitäten im Markt festgeschrieben sind.“

Kontrollen

37 derartige Abkommen gab es im Jahr 2001. Inzwischen ist diese Zahl noch gewachsen. Nur: Ob ein Verhaltenskodex eingehalten wird, muss natürlich geprüft werden.
Dafür kommen unabhängige Überprüfungsorganisationen infrage, wie die Fair Wear Foundation, die Ethical Trading Initiative und die Fair Labour Association.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Wednesday, March 20, 2013, 5:19 PM Print Print Comment Clive Brunskill/Getty Images Prize money for U.S. Open champions – like 2012 winner Andy Murray – will increase significantly in upcoming years. Related Stories Park advocates slam U.S. Tennis Association expansion plan 2012 U.S. Open: Kim Cli michael kors purses outlet jsters, Roger Federer wipe floor with opponents Grueling schedule has stars limping into Open Tennis tourney trash is a boon to boro’s recyclers After a year of closed-door meetings with tennis players seeking a greater say in the sport and a larger slice of Grand Slam revenues, the U.S. Open is making big changes. New York鈥檚 Grand Slam tournament will increase its annual prize money to $50 millio christian louboutin shoes n by 2017 鈥?roughly double what it was last year 鈥?and permanently schedule the men鈥檚 semifinals on Friday and men鈥檚 final on Sunday starting in 2015. As part of an unprecedented five-year agreement with the men鈥檚 and women鈥檚 professional tours, the U.S. Open also is making an additional $4.1 million increase to this year鈥檚 prize pool, on top of an already-record $4 million jump announced in December. That brings the 2013 total payou true religion outlet t to $33.6 million from the $25.5 million in 2012. The U.S. Tennis Association announced the changes Wednesday, a day after they were formally presented to the ATP Player Council at a meeting in Key Biscayne, Fla. Details were described to the AP on Tuesday by USTA officials. 鈥淩oger Federer said it perhaps best of all: It鈥檚 time for us to work together, as opposed to working against each other,鈥?USTA Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer Gordon Smith said in a telephone interview. Federer, the 17-time major champion, is president of the ATP Player Council. He is not playing in the tournament that begins this week at Key Biscayne, but participated in Tuesday鈥檚 meeting via telephone. Federer joined other top players, including current No. 1 Novak Djokovic, in lobbying the USTA and organizers of other major tournaments in an effort that began at the tournament in Indian Wells, Calif., about 12 months ago. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a very positive step for players. You know, it proves that players, I think, are more united than ever. I believe that these are some significant changes in the negotiations with Grand Slams,鈥?Djokovic said Wednesday in Key Biscayne. 鈥淚t hasn鈥檛 happened for, I think, ever or for many, many years that we have such increases. We just feel like we deserve it. There is a lot of players 鈥?not just the top players, but a lot of players who are in top 100, top 200 鈥?who deserve to have a better living from this sport.鈥?Aside from wanting more money, some male players complained the U.S. Open had been the sport鈥檚 only Grand Slam tournament with their semifinals and final on consecutive days. The USTA liked its old 鈥淪uper Saturday鈥?setup 鈥?two men鈥檚 semifinals and the women鈥檚 final all on that day鈥檚 schedule at Flushing Meadows, followed by the men鈥檚 final Sunday 鈥?but tournament director David Brewer acknowledged it was time to scrap it. 鈥淲e realize the game has changed and how they play the game is different even than it was 10 years ago,鈥?Brewer said. 鈥淭he format we鈥檝e had for 30 years was putting players and the tournament in jeopardy at some point.鈥?In December, the USTA said it would move the 2013 women鈥檚 singles final to Sunday and the men鈥檚 final to Monday, building in a day of rest ahead of each title match and moving from a 14-day tournament to 15 days. That schedule will remain in place in 2014, but the U.S. Open will shift things in 2015: women鈥檚 semifinals Thursday, men鈥檚 semifinals Friday, women鈥檚 final Saturday, men鈥檚 final Sunday.JACQUES DEMARTHON/AFP/Getty Images Novak Djokovic (l.) and Roger Federer applaud the increase in prize money at the U.S. Open. 鈥淧ersonally, I am not happy with a Monday final, but it is the way it is for next two years,鈥?Djokovic said. 鈥淚 think we have to accept it, and then after that, it all goes back to normal, hopefully, for Sunday final, like every Grand Slam has.鈥?Another change coming in 2015: Men鈥檚 first-round matches will be played over the U.S. Open鈥檚 opening two days, instead of three. Asked to describe the nature of the negotiations with players, which began about a year ago, USTA Chairman of the Board and President David Haggerty said: 鈥淚 wouldn鈥檛 say necessarily 鈥榩ressure.鈥?I would say 鈥榮pirited discussions.鈥濃€?The USTA does not plan to pay for the higher prize money with a similar leap in ticket prices. 鈥淔rankly, we鈥檒l take somewhat of a hit,鈥?Smith said, 鈥渂ut it鈥檚 the right thing to do for the Open and for the players, so we鈥檙e doing it.鈥?The distribution of the new prize money 鈥?how much will go to the singles champions, for example, or to losers in the early rounds or to doubles teams 鈥?hasn鈥檛 been decided. An announcement is expected closer to the start of the U.S. Open, which runs from Aug. 26 to Sept. 9. The USTA did confirm its commitment to equal paychecks for men and women. But it is not ready to say exactly how prize money will go up between now and 2017, other than that it will increase each year. 鈥淲e have a good idea, but we are still working on that,鈥?Smith said. 鈥淲e鈥檝e shared our thinking (with the ATP), and I think we鈥檙e all pretty much on the same page, but we鈥檙e working out the details.鈥?The USTA鈥檚 prize money announcement comes before the French Open (which starts May 26) and Wimbledon ( starts June 24) say how much they will offer this year. Haggerty said the sport鈥檚 leading tournaments have not coordinated their efforts to placate players. 鈥淭his agreement … really allows us to focus our energies … on growing tennis and participation. This allows us to know generally what the future looks like,鈥?Haggerty said. 鈥淓ach of the Grand Slams make their own decisions. … We have not had conversations with the other Grand Slams to tell them what we鈥檙e doing,鈥?he added. 鈥淭hey will hear about it when it is announced.鈥?Post a Comment Comments See All Comments Guidelines ] To post your comments, please, Sign in .
