PLWF reflects on the status of living wages in the fashion industry and the impacts of Covid-19 during OECD Forum

On the 2nd of February, the Platform Living Wage Financials hosted a webinar on the Garment and Footwear sector and the effect of Covid-19 on living wage. The webinar was part of the OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector and focused on the investor’s perspective: How Covid-19 exacerbated the need to ensure workers’ livelihoods and accelerate the payment of living wages.

During the webinar, four of the platform members – Amundi, ASN Bank, Robeco, and Triodos Investment Management – shined their light on the meaning of responsible investment, the activities and goals of the Platform, the current status of our engagement with garment and footwear companies, and the actions of the platform during the Covid-19 crisis.
