Sri Lankan Apparel industry's new face
Jan '07
The Sri Lankan Apparel Industry has recently launched a campaign to introduce their new industry-appropriate trademark-'Garments without Guilt'. It is the "only outsourced apparel manufacturing country in Asia" which has signed up to 39 of the ILO (International Labour Organisation) Conventions. Additionally, Sri Lanka has ratified all 8 of the core labour conventions of the 1998 ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and rights at work.

The ILO Convention 138 on minimum age for admission to employment, the ILO Convention 105 on Forced Labour and Convention 182 on worst forms of child labour have all been ratified by the Sri Lankan Apparel Industry.

Sri Lankan Apparel Industry looks beyond its business portfolio, over the years it has taken a proactive role in improving socially deprived communities. This Industry has realized that in order to succeed in a professional capacity, it has to make social awareness its focal point.

The projects implemented by the Apparel Industry have hugely benefited Sri Lanka in a big way. One of the good examples of such project by the Srilankan Apparel industry was the Relief Programme. After the tsunami hit Sri Lanka in 2004, relief was provided on short and long-term basis in terms of immediate relief; rations, shelter and clothing. In relation to long-term support; loans, housing restorations and equipment were generously given to the shattered communities across the island.

The Apparel Industry is also involved in other ongoing CSR projects like Environmental restoration, construction of houses, schools and libraries, renovation of hospitals and financial contributions towards education are just a few of the Industry's diverse range of ongoing community service projects.
