Social Responsibility

Fashion Linq accepts responsibility for all activities carried out in its name worldwide. That holds especially true for decent working conditions for the people involved in the production of our collections. We emphasise that responsibility, which extends to all employees who produce for us, irrespective of whether they are employed by us our by or suppliers. To underline our responsibility, Fashion Linq is a member of the BSCI. Furthermore we have signed the ‘Accord on Building and Fire Safety in Bangladesh’, committing ourselves to an improvement project for the safety of people in garment factories in Bangladesh.

Our code of conduct specifies the following criteria that we regard as being vital to our partnerships with suppliers:
  • all transactions in conformity with legal requirements
  • an open and honest way of doing business
  • no child labour
  • no exploitation of individuals or groups
  • no forced labour
  • active care for health and safety
  • freedom to form unions

  • acceptable working hours

Accord on Building and Fire Safety in Bangladesh

The initiative of the Accord on Building and Fire Safety in Bangladesh originates from several fire incidents and accidents in factories in Bangladesh and a collapsed building.

“The Accord” is created by several worldwide organizations (including trade unions), several branded companies and retailers. Their shared goal is to improve working conditions for workers, in garment factories, in the field of fire safety, electric, and building structure.

By signing this Accord together with many other companies worldwide, we are taking care of:

  • inspections in factories regarding fire safety, building structure and electric
  • making recommendations to improve the safety in buildings
  • carrying out these recommendations in factories in which we produce
