EICC Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition for common technical standards
The EICC was founded in 2004 by a small group of electronics companies seeking to create a industry-wide standard on social, environmental and ethical issues in the electronics industry supply chain.
The founding members of the EICC – originally founded under the name “Electronic Industry Code of Conduct” – saw an opportunity to drive positive change and increase efficiency across the industry by creating a unified approach and ensuring that suppliers were held to a common standard.
Unique amongst industry groups, the original eight founders of the EICC included major electronics brands as well as large Tier 1 suppliers. The EICC was run primarily by volunteers from member companies for its first nine years. In 2013, a full-time professional staff was hired to support the EICC in a new phase of growth.

Cooking for Life - clean and save burning with LPG
Cooking for Life, a campaign of the WLPGA, aims to facilitate the transition of ONE BILLION people from cooking with traditional fuels as well as other dirty and dangerous fuels to cleaner-burning LPG by 2030.
The campaign convenes governments, public health officials, the energy industry and global NGOs to expand access to LPG and bring this modern alternative to the people who need it most. We also work to increase public awareness about how traditional fuels negatively affect everyday life among the world’s most vulnerable.
COOKING FOR LIFE puts the necessary tools and resources for success in the hands of energy policy decision makers in developing countries. India, Brazil and Indonesia are shining examples of successful countrywide conversion to LPG, proving that large-scale adoption is possible. The campaign arms leaders in other countries with the best practices and lessons for implementing successful LPG conversion programmes. - Get involved Spread the words - More on Cooking for Life website.
