Sedex joins coalition formed in response to COVID-19 and its impact on the garment industry and its workers
Sedex has joined a group of organisations working on responsible business conduct in the garment industry to collaborate in these unprecedented times. The group is exchanging resources, tools, good practices, and guidance for our members and supporting advocacy with governments and multilateral institutions.
Two priorities that urgently need our attention in response to COVID-19 and its impact on the garment industry and its workers:
1) Protecting worker income and health
2) Future-proofing supply chains
his first joint statement is focused on the crisis and early recovery phase. It calls upon governments and multilateral institutions for action and provides practical guidance on how brands can respect the rights and livelihoods of workers.
