2017 closes with significant remediation progress achieved
DHAKA, Bangladesh – The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety (Alliance) announced today that in the month of December 2017, fifty-four additional Alliance-affiliated factories completed all material components outlined in their Corrective Action Plans (CAPs), bringing the total to 301.
“Each of these factories deserves our commendation for working hard to achieve the Alliance’s strict safety standards,” said Alliance Executive Director Amb. Jim Moriarty. “Their progress sets the tone for 2018, and furthers our mission of ushering in a culture of safety in the Bangladesh garment industry.”
Across all Alliance factories, 87% of all required factory remediation has been completed. In addition, no factories were suspended for failing to make adequate remediation progress in December, reflecting a concerted effort by Alliance factories to take the necessary steps to provide safer working conditions for their employees. The total number of suspended factories stands at 164.
