German fashion brand S.Oliver joins Fair Wear Foundation

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2022-08-01 10:31:06 – Germany

German fashion brand S.Oliver, has become the newest member of the Fair Wear Foundation, which aims to improve working conditions in the apparel industry (FWF).

For many years, the Fair Wear Foundation has worked as an NGO to promote good working conditions in garment-producing nations. Fair Wear will inspect S.Oliver's production locations as an FWF member.

The organization maintains track of the changes achieved by the firms with whom it collaborates, and it helps raise the efficacy of its efforts through sharing expertise, social discussion, and developing industrial ties. The multi-stakeholder effort has a large number of supporters, including InRetail, Modint, CNV International, Mondiaal FNV, and Clean Clothes Campaign.

Sabrina Müller, S.Oliver's head of sustainability, said that they - in collaboration with Fair Wear - want to improve working conditions for people in our supply chain. They intend to move beyond evaluating their suppliers and cooperate with employees, unions, and suppliers to make long-term changes in working conditions in their producing countries.

Müller said that they've set a high standard for themselves, which they want to achieve by incorporating sustainability into all processes and departments, with the help of their management and all teams within the business. Fair Wear, as a multi-stakeholder project, has the experience and network that will assist us in improving working conditions in producing nations, such as by establishing a social dialogue program and a grievance process. As a Fair Wear member, they may also connect with other fashion firms that share their mission. In this manner, they can all learn from one another and perhaps join forces to promote change in the business.

Müller added that because they operate with a centralized supplier base for all of their brands, the work they'll conduct to enhance working conditions with Fair Wear will affect all brands at the same time. Nonetheless, each of their brands has a distinct personality and issues that are fundamental to the brand's identity. They wish to include these identities in their actions as much as possible and use them to achieve their overall targets.
