Social Accountability

www.elmertex.de - Baumwollzwischenlager in Kirgisistan

The rapid globa­li­sa­tion in the fashion business and the challenges posed by produ­cing ever more textiles on an ever tighter time schedule at ever cheaper prices…these develop­ments trans­late into catastro­phic condi­tions in supplier countries.
The workers that produce our textiles and leather goods suffer many injus­tices at their place of work. Social standards have come under public scrutiny. Indepen­dent auditors report exces­sive working hours, below-subsis­tence wages, discri­mi­na­tion, forced labor and other preca­rious or onerous work conditions.
