PARTNERSHIPS

2013

ACCORD

Since 2013, we have been the only Polish member of ACCORD – The Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety, an organization that acts on behalf of the fashion industry to improve the working conditions in Bangladesh. One goal of ACCORD is to implement solutions that ensure fire safety in factories and educate staff about safety procedures and workers’ rights. On September 1, 2021, the existing ACCORD initiative was replaced by a new one – under the name of International Accord for Health and Safety in the Textile and Garment Industry (in short: International Accord). Its aim is to continue and expand the joint efforts of the signatories to the agreement with the trade unions to ensure the safety of garment factories.
