FASHION PROJECT

For the second year, the FLA is conducting a project in partnership with the University of Delaware, the Central American Polytechnic Institute and Gildan Activewear Inc. with the aim of showing fashion companies and the public how to practically ensure ethical production of their goods.



The objective of this project is to demonstrate that even in the complexity of industrial processes, social responsibility is possible. Our program combines the efforts of the students of the University of Delaware -in charge of designing the prototypes-, the Central American Polytechnic Institute in Honduras that made the samples and Gildan Activewear Inc. that manufactured the outfits in a factory monitored by the Fair Labor Association. Thanks to the cooperation between all the parties concerned, we are able to demonstrate that it is possible, practical and affordable to produce fashion items that are respectful of people and the environment.



The FLA has developed three sets of tools to help fashion companies in this task. The first tool help a company track its supply chain and the origin of the various components that go into the production of a good. The second tool allows them to assess their own CSR and sourcing policy and to make sure all the processes are in place to do business in an ethical way. Finally, the third set allows the companies to assess the suppliers: a “pre-sourcing tool” assesses the general compliance readiness of a supplier and gives the company a way of selecting business partners. The “code of conduct scan” tool then provides a deeper picture of the suppliers’ labor compliance performance and points out the issues that need to be remediated.
