Ethical Clothing Australia’s accreditation and labelling system helps consumers make an informed choice for ethical shopping. When you see the Ethical Clothing Australia trademark on a garment, it means everyone involved in its production received fair wages and worked in decent conditions.
The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) takes action on specific issues related to unfair labour conditions. As workers producing clothes for brands and retailers around the world struggle to organise and improve their own conditions, so consumers, trade unionists and activists worldwide can join together to exert pressure at all levels of supply chains. The CCC brings together consumers, trade unions, campaign groups and other diverse organisations to do just that, calling on those with the power in global supply chains to take responsibility for workers' rights. National CCCs target companies in their countries, pushing them to take action. They also work as part of the international CCC network - including partners in countries where garments are made - to join together for coordinated international campaigns such as the Play Fair 2008 campaign.
The ILO is devoted to advancing opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. Its main aims are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue in handling work-related issues.
Fair Wear's mission is to improve labour conditions in the garment industry. The Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) is an international verification initiative dedicated to enhancing workers’ lives all over the world. Fair Wear works closely with a growing number of companies that produce clothing and other sewn products and that take responsibility for their supply chain. FWF keeps track of the improvements made by the companies it works with. And through sharing expertise, social dialogue and strengthening industrial relations, FWF increases the effectiveness of the efforts made by companies.
