‘Fatal Fashion’ REPORT

Fatal Fashion Report

Fatal Fashion, the latest report from the Clean Clothes Campaign and the Center for Research on Multinational Corporations analyzes two recent factory fires associated with the export-oriented garment industry in Bangladesh and Pakistan in which more than 400 lives were lost. Both factories produced clothing for well known American and European clothing retailers.

The  report explains how the factory fires are symptomatic of an ailing system, with failures on the level of government protection of human rights, the reliance of international brands on a failed auditing model where even the absence of a fire exit remains unaddressed, and the gross disrespect shown by the garment industry for workers’ rights.

`
The report includes detailed steps for responsible parties including brands and audit firms to take with regard to compensation, the implementation of fire safety programs and auditing practices.
