File PDF document Clean Clothes Campaign position paper with demands on transparency
by Mirjam van Heugten published 26-04-2016 last modified 26-04-2016 06:27
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.

Adidas, another buyer at the factory at the time, also refuses to support the workers.
