Formed in The Netherlands in 1989, the CCC is dedicated to improving working conditions and supporting the empowerment of workers in the global garment and sportswear industries. It is a global alliance of trade unions and NGOs. The CCC has developed a Code of Labour Practices for the Apparel Industry Including Sportswear. The principles set forth in this code include minimum employment age, safe working requirements, right to a living wage and so on. In the UK, Labour Behind The Label, which campaigns for workers’ rights in the clothing industry, is the platform for the CCC. Website:

Fashion Revolution (Global)

Created in 2013, this is a global movement that campaigns for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. On the 24th of April, the anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza building collapse, the deadliest accident in the garment-factory industry, people around the world call on brands to answer the question #WhoMadeMyClothes. In 2015, 63 million people from across 76 countries used this hashtag. In 2016, Fashion Revolution launched the first edition of the Fashion Transparency Index scoring 40 of the biggest global fashion companies on what information they disclose to stakeholders and the public about social and environmental issues across their supply chains. There are now 80 countries worldwide taking part in Fashion Revolution. Website:
