“In June 2020, we became signatories of the COVID-19: Action in the Global Garment Industry call to action, set out by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and endorsed by organisations such as the Fair Labour Association and International Trade Union Confederation. The initiative is working towards bringing the industry together in regards to implementing more efficient social security systems as a collaborative group. As well as working in collaboration with these stakeholders, we have continued to work with NGOs, suppliers, vendors and strategic partners across our sourcing regions to continue the development of our Ethical Trading Programme to ensure workers’ rights are maintained during the course of the global pandemic.”
