HONG KONG: Esprit signs up to Better Work scheme
Esprit is expected to promote the implementation of decent work
Hong Kong-based fashion brand Esprit has signed as a buying partner to the International Labour Organization's (ILO) Better Work initiative.
The Better Work programme, which launched in 2009, aims to improve working conditions in the Vietnam, Indonesia and Cambodia ready-made garment sectors.
As a buyer partner, Esprit will promote the implementation of decent work, transparency, collaboration and accountability.
The brand will also engage clothing supply chains in participating countries, where Better Work provides assessment, advisory and training services to registered suppliers to improve workplace conditions.
"We are convinced joining the advanced Better Work program is an important step because it will provide the best support available to assure that factory workers producing Esprit goods are treated fairly," said Charles Dickinson, senior vice president and head of global quality management and sustainability at Esprit.
