During the month of September, 29 additional Alliance-affiliated factories completed all material components outlined in their Corrective Action Plans (CAPs), bringing the total to 195, the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety reported.
The factories include ARK Washing, Ayesha Clothing Co. Ltd., Ayesha Washing Ltd., Babylon Trims Ltd. (PKG), Civic Apparels Ltd., Color City, Colossus Apparel Limited Unit 2, Confidence Industries Ltd., Cortz Apparels Ltd., DB Tex Ltd., Dhakarea Limited (Yupoong Inc.), DNV Clothing Ltd., Global Nassa Wear Ltd., Hamza Textiles Ltd., Impressive Garments (Pvt.) Ltd., Intimate Attire Limited, Mahdeen Sweaters Ltd., Mam Garments Ltd., Mansheen Co (BD) Ltd., Marina Apparels Ltd., Mymum Textiles Ltd., Nassa Basic Ltd., Nassa Fashions Ltd., Nassa Hi-Tech Wear Ltd., One Composite Mills Ltd., Try On Shoe Material BD Ltd., SAN Apparel Ltd., Shamzer Rezia Fashions Ltd., and The Civil Engineers Limited.
“We commend each and every one of these factories for prioritizing remediation and fulfilling their commitment to providing safer workplaces for their employees,” said Alliance country director Amb. Jim Moriarty.
During Q3 (July-September 2017) there were more than four times as many CAP completions among Alliance-affiliated factories as there were in Q1 or Q2, further demonstrating that the Alliance is on pace to complete remediation across its affiliated factories in 2018. September also marked the first month this year in which zero factories were suspended for failure to make remediation progress.
"Efforts to fortify safety within our factories are right on track, and the factories remaining in our network are working to meet our strict safety requirements," Amb. Moriarty said. "Our commitment to Bangladesh is stronger than ever, and we areworking with key organizations in Dhaka now on a transition plan that will enable the continuation of this important work in Bangladesh’s garment industry over the long term."
