The factories that have completed their CAPs are Alif Print & EM (Embroidery Village), Brandix Apparel Bangladesh Ltd., Envoy Textiles Ltd, Hop Yick Bangladesh Ltd, Karnaphuli Shoes Industries Limited, Lam Min Associates (Unit-2), Savar Dyeing and Finishing Ind, World Ye Apparels (BD) Ltd., Youngone (CEPZ) Ltd and Youngone Sports Shoe Industries Ltd Unit-2.
“We commend these factories for making concrete commitments to worker safety by achieving substantial completion of their Corrective Action Plans,” said Alliance country director Jim Moriarty. “Their laser focus on remediation is reflective of a broader push that has transformed safety in Bangladesh’s RMG industry and directly translated into lives saved.”
Meanwhile, the Alliance also continues to enforce accountability measures for factories that fail to prioritise remediation. In March and April, it suspended nine factories from the Alliance compliant factory list, bringing the total number of suspended factories to 146.
The Alliance was formed by North American retailers including Walmart and Gap after the Rana Plaza building collapse in April, 2013, that killed more than 1,100 people, mostly garments workers. Under a five-year plan, the Alliance has set timeframes and accountability for inspections and training and workers empowerment programmes. (RKS)
