Fair Wear Foundation - Support Organizations @ E2Expo
Updated : Dec 2020
Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) works with garment companies to improve labour conditions in the garment industry. Members of FWF - European garment companies - work towards improving the labour conditions in factories that produce their garments. The basis of the collaboration between FWF and a member is the Code of Labour Practices.
FWF joins together business associations, trade unions, and NGOs as equal partners at every level of FWF activity – from decision-making at the Board level to workplace verification. Each stakeholder group has an important role to play in improving working conditions, and the impact is that much greater when they all work together. They are tackling complex problems by uncovering new solutions and driving step-by-step improvements that create real change for the people who work in garment factories. Four key activities make up the Fair Wear approach: brand performance checks, factory audits, complaints helplines and factory training sessions.
FWF’s more than 80 member companies represent over 120 brands, and are based in Europe; member products are sold in over 20,000 retail outlets in more than 80 countries around the world.
