H&M tackles issue of working conditions in Cambodia
After attempting to raise Bangladesh’s minimum wage, the Swedish company is now aiming to improve working condition in Cambodia.
Helena Helmersson, head of sustainability at H&M, met with subcontractors and union officers in attempt to encourage dialogue between the key players. The week before in Sweden, she met with Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister in order to these same issues.
“A longterm improvement of working conditions requires constant and effective communication between all.” Helmersson is looking to create an environment that benefits everyone; workers, suppliers, government, the country, as well as themselves – the buyers.
