WHY SHOULD AN ORGANIZATION REGISTER FOR THE JUST PROGRAM?

The JUST Program demonstrates an organization’s commitment to social justice and equity issues referenced by the information provided for every category and indicator in the JUST metrics. The JUST Label can be used by an organization on their website, internal communications, annual reports, corporate social responsibility reports, posters and in marketing materials to show commitment and public transparency on these issues. We think the benefits are obvious and happy to discuss further.

WHEN DOES AN ORGANIZATION BECOME CERTIFIED AS A JUST ORGANIZATION?

The JUST Label does not constitute an endorsement, verification, or certification from the International LIVING FUTURE Institute. Instead, the JUST Label is granted solely through our permission and reflects the integrity and transparency of the organization that submitted its information on the social justice indicators. Organizations may not use the JUST label without registering and posting all information in our publicly viewable database.

WHEN CAN AN ORGANIZATION UPDATE ITS JUST PROGRAM INFORMATION?

An organization can and should update any of its information with the JUST Program on an ongoing basis so it is current and accurately reflects its involvement in the JUST Label social justice and equity indicators. An organization must pay a renewal fee when the JUST Label has been updated to reflect current policies and organizational data. The JUST Label must be updated at a minimum of two years from the date of initial publication.

WHERE IS AN ORGANIZATION’S JUST PROGRAM INFORMATION KEPT?

All of an organization’s submitted information is maintained in the JUST Program’s publicly viewable database. It is important to understand that the label is merely the summary of performance. In the spirit of transparency all submitted information is posted in viewable but non-editable format. Because the JUST website is viewable by all, organizations are asked not to submit any confidential or sensitive information.

WHEN CAN A JUST LABEL BE REVOKED?

Use of the JUST label can be revoked for any reason and at any time by ILFI. That said, ILFI does not intend to revoke labels unless there is substantive reasons to do so. Typically these reasons include:
a) information that clarifies that information provided is patently false or inaccurate
b) use of the JUST Label that is in conflict with our branding and marketing guidelines for fair use of the label. (see the branding and marketing guide lines in the appendix of the JUST Manual).

WHAT ARE THE REGISTRATION PROCEDURES?

An organization wishing to participate in the JUST Program must:
1. Create a new account with User Name, Email and Password.
2. Activate your account by linking to site provided by the Institute via a confirmation email.
3. Accept the terms and conditions of the JUST Program.
Once you have completed the registration process, you can begin to upload your organizational profile and preview the JUST website. Once you are ready to begin uploading data to the JUST website, you will need to submit a $100 USD registration fee.

WHAT IS THE DOCUMENTATION PROCESS?

1. Once officially registered, the organization can upload to the JUST Program all of the required information for each category and each indicator. The required information is referenced in the JUST Manual and on this website. Information must be complete in order to receive a label.
2. The Institute will permit organizations to opt out of a maximum of three indicators but only one indicator per category.

WHAT ARE THE POSTING PROTOCOLS?

1. All information will be publicly viewable in non-editable format as a component of the JUST Program. Each JUST organization will have a listing on our database.
2. Prior to its posting on the JUST website, the organization will have the right to verify and sign off on the accuracy of the information.
3. Once the organization verifies the information, the Institute will post the organization’s JUST Label and complete information on its publicly viewable database.

WHAT ARE THE GUIDELINES FOR USE OF THE JUST LABEL?

1. The JUST Label does not constitute an endorsement, verification, or certification from the Institute and cannot be marketed or communicated as such.
2. Organizations can use the JUST Label on their website or marketing to demonstrate their commitment to these issues. See our marketing and branding guidelines in the appendix of the JUST Manual for more information. For example – the organization may not in any way modify the label provided – changing information or proportions.
