SIGNING TRANSPARENCY PLEDGE
Last Tuesday, Schijvens signed a Transparency Pledge with 7 other companies that participate in the Agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textile. In this we promise to be transparent about our production by publishing a list showing where we produce our clothing, what type of clothing we produce there and how many people work there.
The Transparency Pledge is an initiative of, among others, the Clean Clothes Campaign (SKC) and labor and human rights organizations such as Human Right Watch. Making production locations public is an important step towards better production conditions. This allows (local) parties to report abuses in factories directly to clothing companies, so that they can take action on this.
At Schijvens we have been committed to a living wage for some time and we are also affiliated with the Fair Wear Foundation for this. Within the covenant we have previously announced our production locations via a joint production location list. We also publish our action plan every year in which our customers can read about the current situation in our factories and what our objectives are for the coming year.
