Public letter: H&M must stick to the living wage commitment made in 2013
by Neva Nahtigal published 19-03-2018 last modified 10-12-2018 08:59 — filed under: , ,
Back in 2013 H&M made a widely publicized commitment: that workers in their supply chain would be paid a living wage by 2018. As 2018 has already begun but hundreds of thousands of workers behind H&M's products are still receiving poverty wages, Clean Clothes Campaign nudged H&M's top ranks with a public letter today. Addressing H&M's Board of Directors, CEO and Head of Sustainability, we requested specific information regarding efforts made so far be made public, and we outlined the steps H&M would have to take to act on the 2013 commitment in a meaningful way.

H&M is trying to cover up its unfulfilled commitment on living wage
by Neva Nahtigal published 12-04-2018 last modified 10-12-2018 08:58 — filed under: ,
In its 2017 Sustainability Report published today H&M is making bold claims about progress in the area of fair jobs, with a focus on living wage. Clean Clothes Campaign has been closely following H&M’s reporting in this area, as well as gathering information in production countries, and we are compelled to strongly refute the self-congratulatory statements made in the report.

Garment workers are waiting for an answer – will H&M deliver on its promise to pay a living wage in 2018?
by Christie Miedema published 25-11-2017 last modified 24-11-2017 09:26 — filed under: , , ,
Four years ago today, H&M made a bold promise that, if kept, would mean a game changer for the industry. On 25 November 2013, the company vowed to pay what H&M calls a ‘fair living wage’ to the garment workers in its supply chain by 2018. On the fourth anniversary of H&M’s historic statement, with 2018 just around the corner, Clean Clothes Campaign and global partners are greatly anticipating the moment next year when every garment worker that stitches clothes for H&M will receive a living wage.

File H&M Factories Still Not Safe
by Christie Miedema published 02-05-2016 last modified 02-05-2016 05:49 — filed under: , ,
During August 24 to September 1, 2015, the Clean Clothes Campaign, International Labor Rights Forum, Maquila Solidarity Network, and Worker Rights Consortium reviewed the Corrective Action Plans (CAPs) posted on the website of the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh (“the Accord”). Our report focused on H&M’s strategic suppliers, studying each of the 32 Accord CAPs available for these factories. Between January 11 and 16, 2016, the four NGO witness signatories to the Accord conducted a new review of CAPs for the same 32 H&M strategic suppliers. In this update of May 2, 2016, the four Accord witness signatories, have again reviewed the most recent corrective action plans and progress reports for the same set of 32 factories checked before. For the first time, the latest corrective action plans for 22 additional H&M strategic supplier factories were included as well.
