Taking action: 1 million workers trained

We believe in taking action to improve the lives of garment workers. We are proud to be a founding member of the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety.

Together with local Bangladeshis, workers and other retailers — the Alliance is supporting efforts to drive lasting, positive impact for Bangladeshi garment workers, the garment industry and the country's economy.
