Value for global brands and retailers
Better Work helps global brands and retailers in the garment industry meet a number of distinct challenges in managing their supply chains. We help to mitigate risk and remedy poor working conditions by supporting suppliers to improve adherence to labour standards and laws; we help provide greater transparency on compliance; and we support the development of stable and well managed sourcing environments.
Since 2007 Better Work has been working with more than 100 well-known global brands to support a thriving, competitive garment industry with decent working conditions. In collaboration with suppliers, factories, trade unions and governments we have created lasting, positive change through capacity-building, assessments, training and research focused on changing attitudes and behaviour.

Better Work brands benefit from cost savings, enhanced reputation and risk management, and a safe venue for collaborating with other global brands to create stable sourcing environments.
When brands and retailers join Better Work, they are making a positive decision for their staff, shareholders, customers and workers in their supply chain.
