ETI says McAllister has “successfully steered” the organisation through a period of considerable change and maintained its 25-year commitment to advocate for vulnerable workers through tripartite engagement.

He guided the organisation through the obstacles presented by the pandemic such as global supply chain disruptions and the impact felt by those further down the supply chain.

McAllister provided support and remediation efforts after the tragic collapse of Rana Plaza on 24 April 2013, advocating for the inclusion of provisions for corporate accountability in the UK’s Modern Slavery Act, and leading several projects that have positively impacted hundreds of thousands of workers across four continents.

Reflecting on his tenure, Peter McAllister said: “While many challenges remain it’s been incredibly motivating to see what can be achieved when you combine the insights and networks of our NGO and trade union members with the influence that leading businesses can exercise through their value chains. I’m sure that ETI will go from strength to strength in the future.”

Mary Creagh CBE, chair of the ETI board added: “Peter has been a tireless campaigner for human rights in supply chains over the last 13 years. I and the whole board would like to thank him warmly for his inspirational leadership and commitment.”

Creagh went on to say that McAllister will leave behind an expert staff team and a committed board, all passionate about building upon his achievements.

Creagh also pointed out that McAllister has displayed his “typical generosity” by providing the board with ample time to identify and onboard his successor by mid-2024.

In September, ETI encouraged global fashion buyers sourcing from Morocco to aid their suppliers following the devastating earthquake that impacted the country.
