'Increasing number of brands placing Fair Wages in their sustainability strategy

“Wages in our supply chain are a key focus in our sustainability work. Wage structures in global supply chains are often complex. The Fair Wage Network works to bring together fashion brands, garment producers, NGOs, worker representatives and researchers to promote fair wages around the world…. An ambition that we fully support” (H&M, 2011).

Cooperating with other NGOs

FLA was the first organisation to implement the Fair Wage method and to recognize the value of its comprehensive approach. ‘Most corporate social responsibility work on wages has focused on whether a workplace meets a certain level of compensation, usually the legal minimum wage. But fairness of wages and, crucially, perception of wage fairness, are more complex than that’. (FLA 2011)*
