The Alliance presses forward with factory remediation and accountability measures
DHAKA, Bangladesh - The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety announced today that during the months of March and April, ten additional Alliance-affiliated factories completed all material components outlined in their Corrective Action Plans (CAPs), bringing the total number of factories completing their CAPs to 76.
The factories include Alif Print & EM (Embroidery Village), Brandix Apparel Bangladesh Ltd., Envoy Textiles Ltd, Hop Yick Bangladesh Ltd, Karnaphuli Shoes Industries Limited, Lam Min Associates (Unit-2), Savar Dyeing and Finishing Ind, World Ye Apparels (BD) Ltd., Youngone (CEPZ) Ltd and Youngone Sports Shoe Industries Ltd Unit-2.
“We commend these factories for making concrete commitments to worker safety by achieving substantial completion of their Corrective Action Plans,” said Alliance Country Director Jim Moriarty. “Their laser focus on remediation is reflective of a broader push that has transformed safety in Bangladesh’s RMG industry and directly translated into lives saved.”
The Alliance also continued to enforce accountability measures for factories that failed to prioritize remediation. In March and April, nine factories were suspended from the Alliance compliant factory list, bringing the total number of suspended factories to 146.
The complete list of factories that have achieved substantial completion of their CAPs, as well as those that have been suspended, can be found on the Alliance website.
