File In the face of corporate impunity. Progress in Europe
by Christie Miedema published 08-11-2016 last modified 10-11-2016 11:49
France is preparing a bill relating to the duty of care incumbent upon parent and subcontracting companies, which is struggling to be definitively adopted. Yet this bill would finally make it possible to tackle the human rights violations and corruption taking place in French companies’ supply and production chains. This report by Forum Citoyen pour la Responsabilité Sociale des Entreprises, of which Collectif Éthique sur l'Étiquette is a member, shows that France is not the only European country working towards this objective. Here is an overview from October 2016 showing the various initiatives to curb corporate impunity across Europe.

CCC reaction to the launch of children’s clothing collection by H&M and WWF
by Christie Miedema published 29-09-2016 last modified 29-09-2016 08:45 — filed under:
On 29th of September, H&M and WWF have launched a new collection of children’s clothing aimed at leading the way toward a more environmentally friendly garment industry. While H&M and WWF attempt to reduce water pollution and promote closed loop recycling management, core problems of their ‘fast fashion’ model are not addressed. H&M continues to pursue a business model that relies heavily on high sales volumes, rapid growth rates and overconsumption, and is therefore truly unsustainable at heart. The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) fears that the company is once again profiting from a marketing opportunity that will lead to little change for affected people and may mislead consumers.

by Christie Miedema published 23-09-2016 last modified 22-09-2016 16:08
This report, released September 2016, is a joint effort of the Cambodian NGO Center for Alliance of Labor & Human Rights (CENTRAL) and the Norwegian NGO Future In Our Hands (Framtiden i våre hender). Interviews were conducted during February and March 2016 by CENTRAL. The report was written by CENTRAL and Future In Our Hands and and finalized with the assistance of Clean Clothes Campaign International Office and the Swedish NGO Fair Action. Several violations were identified in each of the factories. The H&M platinum suppliers, Eastex, Vanco and Seduno, were presumed to perform better than the selected gold supplier, M&V. However, general working conditions at the platinum suppliers were actually worse than the gold rated supplier M&V.

Working conditions in garment factories in Cambodia supplying H&M are far from decent even in those that H&M considers to be «best in class». This is the conclusion of a report released by Cambodian NGO Center for Alliance of Labor & Human Rights (CENTRAL) and Future In Our Hands, which represents Clean Clothes Campaign in Norway. The report «When ‘best’ is far from good enough» is based on interviews with workers and describes labour rights violations in four of H&M’s key suppliers in Cambodia.
