Feasibility study for the expansion of the International Accord
Ethics at Work has helped the International Accord Foundation conduct an in-depth feasibility study on the possibilities of setting up worker safety programmes in garment producing countries.
The International Accord for Health and Safety in the Textile and Garment Industry is a legally binding agreement between global trade unions and over 150 clothing companies. The agreement continues the work of the 2013 and 2018 Accords on Fire & Building Safety in Bangladesh and will further establish worker safety programmes in at least one other country. The International Accord Foundation, based in the Netherlands, is implementing the agreement.
