Patagonia scales up Fair Trade programme
14
Oct '16
To help improve the lives of factory workers, Patagonia, the largest supplier of apparel made in Fair Trade certified factories, has scaled its Fair Trade programme from one factory and 11 styles in fall 2014 to six factories and 218 styles in fall 2016. The Fair Trade programme ensures workers are safe, treated with respect and paid fair compensation.

For every product made by a Fair Trade Certified factory, companies pay an additional premium that workers can use to elevate their standard of living and bridge the gap between a minimum wage and a living wage. This premium amount is used either as a cash bonus or to pay for social, economic and environmental community projects.

Since 2014, Patagonia has paid $639,000 in premiums that go directly to the workers producing its apparel and by fall 2017, Patagonia expects to manufacture 300 styles or around one-third of its products in Fair Trade certified factories.

Patagonia's supply chain involves nearly 75 factories and more than 100,000 workers worldwide. (AR)
