The Danish Ethical Trading Initiative (DIEH) was founded in February 2008. DIEH is the first Danish multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together trade unions, business associations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and companies to promote ethical trade and responsible supply chain management among Danish companies and public institutions.
DIEH is a member based resource centre, which seeks to identify and promote good practices and develop practical solutions to ethical dilemmas. The overall aim is to promote international trade and responsible supply chain management that support the 10 principles of UN Global Compact. The focus is on implementing corporate codes of practice covering human rights and working conditions in the global supply chain, which contribute to sustainable development in developing countries and the new economies.
DIEH organises workshops and seminars on topical issues and facilitate dialogue and exchange knowledge and experiences in relation to ethical challenges in the global supply chain. DIEH will also offer a number of services, which include developing specific tools for responsible supply chain management and guidance on how to develop ethical guidelines.
DIEH is administered by a small secretariat and the funding is provided partly by Danida under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and partly by membership fees.
The secretariat is working to coordinate and facilitate DIEH activities and guide the members in their work with ethical trade.
The secretariat is responsible for the coordination and execution of DIEH´s activities, including strengthening the members' knowledge within the area of Ethical Trading.
