Esprit, the international fashion brand for clothing and lifestyle products, has signed as a buyer partner with Better Work, a partnership between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) that brings together governments, employers, workers and international buyers to improve compliance with labour standards and promote competitiveness in global supply chains.

“We are convinced joining the advanced Better Work program is an important step because it will provide the best support available to assure  that factory workers producing Esprit goods are treated fairly”, comments Charles Dickinson, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Quality Management & Sustainability, Esprit.

Better Work Buyer Partners engage strategically with both the Better Work program and with national stakeholders to drive change within the industry.

Better Work offers suppliers a transparent and credible way to provide buyers with information about compliance and improvements. Through the Better Work Buyers' Forums, at the national and international levels, Buyer Partners can come together to discuss challenges to compliance with labour standards and help identify innovative solutions.
