Which brands care about workers' safety?

In August 2021 brands and unions agreed on a new International Accord that would continue the life-saving work of the Bangladesh Accord to make factories safe after the Rana Plaza collapse. This new agreement will furthermore allow for the expansion of the work to other countries. A list of companies that have signed on to the agreement, that started to work on 1 September 2021, can be found below. All of the brands that have not yet signed the Accord continue to put workers' lives at risk and we urge them to sign on as soon as possible.

This list was last updated on 20 September 2021. There are 122 signatories to the International Accord.

Take Action

The brands on the negative side of this tracker will need your encouragement to do the right thing. Write a direct e-mail to these brands to tell them that workers' lives must have their absolute priority.
It's time for all brands to commit to a strong and enforceable agreement that can also cover workers beyond Bangladesh.

About the Bangladesh Accord

The Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, established after the Rana Plaza collapse of 24 April 2013, has done crucial work to make factories in Bangladesh safer. It could do so because brands signed a legally binding agreement with trade unions obligating them to fulfil their promises. Despite the clear successes of the Accord, it took many months to negotiate a new agreement, but at the end of August 2021 the negotiating brands and unions finally announced a new International Accord which will allow for expansion of the work beyond Bangladesh.
