When "best" is far from good enough: Violations of workers' rights at four of H&M 'best-in-class' suppliers in Cambodia
This report, released September 2016, is a joint effort of the Cambodian NGO Center for Alliance of Labor & Human Rights (CENTRAL) and the Norwegian NGO Future In Our Hands (Framtiden i våre hender).
Interviews were conducted during February and March 2016 by CENTRAL. The report was written
by CENTRAL and Future In Our Hands and and finalized with the assistance of Clean Clothes
Campaign International Office and the Swedish NGO Fair Action.
Several violations were identified in each of the factories. The H&M platinum suppliers, Eastex,
Vanco and Seduno, were presumed to perform better than the selected gold supplier, M&V.
However, general working conditions at the platinum suppliers were actually worse than the gold
rated supplier M&V.
