Dutch RMG companies to sign agreement with FWF

Dutch garment companies will sign the Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garment and Textile. The Agreement and Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) that pledge the same goals will work together to achieve them. Companies that sign the agreement could use FWF membership to comply with the social requirements. All the work FWF member companies are doing to improve labour conditions at their suppliers are in line with the Agreement’s objectives points out FWF director Erica van Doorn.

FWF brands work to reduce risks in their supply chain, take responsibility when things go wrong and let an independent NGO publically report on their efforts. Members are required to develop internal management systems to better support good workplace conditions. Every year, FWF examines its member brands on how their management practices support good labour conditions during the ‘Brand Performance Checks’, a set of 42 detailed indicators.

On its part, FWF publically reports on the strengths and weaknesses of each brand, and on how they have progressed over time. Companies need to be able to prove that they have taken substantial steps forward toward positive change in the garment industry.
