H&M's response to CCC's recent report 'Evaluation of H&M Compliance with Safety Action Plans for Strategic Suppliers in Bangladesh 2015', focusing on H&M's worker safety failures in Bangladesh is replete with false and misleading statements, demonstrating that the company remains unwilling to address the issue in a serious and forthright manner. In this news update, we explore various claims made by H&M, concerning our report and concerning the delays in safety renovations at its supplier factories in Bangladesh, relative to the deadlines imposed by the Accord on Fire and Building Safety.

The majority of the workers with injuries from the flames are also barely able to live from hand to mouth without help. So far the amounts paid by the brands are made up out of whole cloth, they are far from full and fair compensation.
