Een tijdje geleden rees de vraag op de FFG forums of de manier waarop de X-Wing miniatuurkes geproduceerd worden wel ethisch verantwoord was.

Na veel vijven en zessen kwam er een officieel antwoord:

Dear [Cilionelle],

My name is Mark Pollard, and I’m the Marketing Content Manager at Fantasy Flight Games. I’m writing to you in response to your question about FFG’s manufacturing processes, which I received via our online customer service form.

First, thanks so much for your kind praise of FFG’s products. Like you, we’re all excited about the success of X-Wing, Edge of the Empire, and Android: Netrunner, and I’m happy to hear that you’re such a fan!

Regarding your concern about working conditions at our manufacturing facilities in China, I’d like you to know that we take the issue of fair and humane labor practices quite seriously. In fact, just three weeks ago, our Production Manager returned from a trip to China. One of his many tasks while there was to tour and inspect the facilities of our manufacturing partners, and he found the working conditions to be more than fair.

More specifically, before we agree to do business with a manufacturer, we require that they meet certain ethical standards. Of course, they must comply with all local safety and environmental laws, but our standards go even further. Our manufacturing partners must meet the standards of the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI).

The worldwide gold standard for fair labor practices in the game and toy industry, the ICTI is an independent, third-party organization that promotes fair and safe workplace conditions in the factories it oversees. They accomplish this through a campaign of education, consistent monitoring, and regular inspections. For more on the ICTI and its role in manufacturing, I encourage you to visit their website at www.icti-care.org.

In closing, I’d like to again thank you for your question. Rest assured that we do everything reasonably possible to make sure that we, along with all of our manufacturers and sublicensees, provide employees with safe, fair, and humane working conditions. If that weren’t the case, I wouldn’t work here.

regards,

Mark Pollard
Marketing Content Manager, mpollard@fantasyflightgames.com
