The Bangladesh Agreement on Health and Safety in the Textile and Garment Industry
The signatory parties to Bangladesh Safety Program (CSSP Bangladesh) commit to the principles enshrined in the 2023 International Accord, and as stipulated in the 2013, 2018 and the 2021 Accord agreements on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. The program in the country had a significant impact on the lives of thousands of workers. This effort resulted in more than 1020 safety committees trained, 1800 worker complaints processed and approximately 1.7 million people participating in safety training.
ALDI, in collaboration with its business partners, has played an important role by disclosing all factories producing for the company in countries with International Accord programs, ensuring all listed factories participate in the inspection, remediation, and safety training, as well as contributing to the operational costs of International Accord measurements.
This is an important step in continuing to protect the health and safety of workers and helps meet ALDI’s ongoing commitment to improve transparency and develop safe and sustainable textile supply chains.
