GENEVA, Nov. 24 /CSRwire/ - From a recent collaboration with the International Trade Centre (ITC), a joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization, CSRwire is pleased to introduce a partnership which will extend free access to all CSRwire members for a period of three months to the suite of ITC’s market analysis tools. Benefits will include the information provided in ITC’s interactive Web tools – Standards Map, Trade Map and Market Access Map.

What is The Standards Map?

Standards Map – www.standardsmap.org – was developed by ITC’s T4SD (Trade for Sustainable Development) Program with the aim to enhance access to information on sustainability standards and increase opportunities for sustainable production and trade. It currently contains information on more than 50 sustainability standards and codes that collectively operate in more than 200 countries and certify or verify over 80 different sectors – including agriculture, forestry, fisheries, mining, textiles and manufactured products among others. New standards are constantly added to the system, and a total of 70 standards will be in the database by the end of 2011.

To understand which sustainability standards may be the most interesting to you, Standards Map allows you to…

  • Analyze standards by benchmarking them against others contained in the ITC database
  • Identify opportunities for product diversification and new niche markets
  • Review research on sustainability standards
  • Visualize standards requirements and scope by generating maps to view standards actual and potential geographical scope

How to benefit from this extraordinary offer?

To get three free months access to the Standards Map, please register to the ITC’s Market Analysis Tools on http://mas-admintools.intracen.org/accounts/Registration.aspx and insert the promotional code ITCGTW11. The offer is valid until December 23, 2011, so don’t hesitate and take a few minutes to become a new user of the interactive ITC’s Market Analysis Tools.

Feel free to share the good news and spread the word to other CSRwire Members.
