Clean Clothes Campaign position paper with demands on transparency

Clean Clothes Campaign presented this position paper on transparency to the European Commission on 25th April 2016 during the conference on responsible management of the supply chain in the garment sector. The garment industry has complex chains of production and responsibility, with many actors at different levels playing a part in production. Poor transparency in supply chains of European companies and lack of data have long been a barrier to improvement of human rights and working conditions. There is a clear need to elaborate on this soft legislation in the UNGPs to make it clearer what transparency (“show”) looks like for companies and governments.
