Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety Statement


DHAKA, Bangladesh - The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety issues the following statement in response to the tragic events which unfolded in Dhaka this past weekend.

“In the wake of last week’s violent attack in the diplomatic area of Dhaka, our thoughts and prayers remain with everyone affected, including the victims, the loved ones of those who lost their lives or were wounded and members of the community who have been rocked by this attack.

While each individual member company of the Alliance is responsible for their own global sourcing decisions, the Alliance will stay the course in Bangladesh despite this unspeakable tragedy. We believe improving safety for the millions of men and women who make a living in Bangladesh’s garment sector is a moral imperative—and while we are taking steps to ensure the safety of our staff and contractors, our work to improve safety in garment factories will continue.”
