H&M roadmap to address garment workers living wages
26
Nov '13
During the last year, H&M has worked on new vision and roadmap on how to address wages the best way. The roadmap addresses wages, both short and long term, on several levels from our purchasing practices, supplier practices, workers’ rights to Government responsibility.

It has always been its vision that all textile workers should be able to live on their wage. That is also stated in its Code of Conduct. It believes that the wage development, driven by for example governments in some countries, is taking too long, so it wants to take further action and encourage the whole industry to follow. With size comes responsibility and it has the ability to contribute to change.

H&M’s new roadmap is based on its vision that a fair living wage covering workers basic needs should be paid by all our commercial goods suppliers. This should be enabled through H&M’s purchasing practices, and based on a skilled workforce that have their wages negotiated and annually reviewed, involving democratically elected trade unions or worker representatives.
