Conscience Consumption & SACOM’s Disney Project

Disneyland Hong Kong opened on September 12th, 2005 and drew many tourists from Hong Kong, mainland China, and Asia. The Hong Kong government projects that Disneyland HK will generate a profit of HK$148 billion in the coming 40 years. It expects that 30,000 people will visit Disneyland HK everyday and projects that each of them may spend an average of HK$680. This amount implies the notion that Disneyland Hong Kong’s source of profit is not confined to the sale of tickets amounting to around HK$200 to $300 per person, but in fact relies heavily on the sale of consumer products such as toys, clothes, figurines, stationeries and other accessories.

Labour Conditions of Giordano: an Overview

The phrase, “a world without strangers”, implies a world where neither nationalities, class, ethnicity nor gender divide people. It is a utopia that everyone wishes for. For Giordano, this widely held ideal is one of the primary ideas behind its marketing image. The phrase is meant to be consistent with the simplicity and modesty of Giordano clothing and also gives people a sense of familiarity. The phrase is familiar with Hong Kong shoppers, and its popularity contributed to the quick rise and development of the Giordano name. The publicly traded firm, Giordano, is a model of a successful, domestic Hong Kong clothing line.
However, it turns out that this ideal of “a world without strangers” is merely a marketing strategy, and in [...]

Newsletter – Industry’s reactions to ‘High Tech – No Rights?’ disappoint so far (Good Electronics)

June, Bread for All, SACOM

The one year follow up report on working conditions in China’s electronic hardware sector by SACOM and Bread for All has not yet yielded substantial responses from the industry. The Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) has submitted a response, which however fails to deal with the main question, that is the gap between paper policies and implementation on the ground. The Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) has not yet given a reaction. Dell has promised to undertake a study on the three surveyed Lite-On Facilities in China, to be released within 90 days after the publication of the report, which means by August 2008. Other companies whose suppliers were surveyed have not given any feedback, despite being [...]
