A Movement To Reform Fashion
4-1-20 – PVH (Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, IZOD, et al) is among the first companies to reverse its decision to cancel orders and agrees to #PayUp to its garment workers in full and on time for clothing that was in production or completed prior to the pandemic.
7-1-21 – In alignment with its commitment to the Transparency Pledge, PVH discloses all of its tier 1 cut and sew factories gaining the company a yellow slash to acknowledge progress under Go Transparent.
To receive a “YES” for Go Transparent on the PayUp Fashion Tracker, PVH must a) additionally disclose its tier 2 (fabric mills), tier 3 (yarn and fiber mills) and tier 4 (raw materials) suppliers; b) disclose the wages of the lowest-earning workers at each factory and c) share audit and remediation reports publicly, and make these findings available to the garment workers in the audited factories.
SIGN ENFORCEABLE CONTRACTS
9-2-21 – PVH has signed onto the new enforceable Accord agreement on workplace safety. The agreement meets all of our demands, including individual accountability for brands, an independent Secretariat, and expansion into new countries. Thus, we’ve given PVH the designation of “Brand Meets Some Conditions” for meeting part of this demand. To receive a “Yes” for Sign Enforceable Contracts, PVH will need to overhaul their purchase order contracts to adopt the Buyer Code of Conduct and support a humane pace of production and dignified wages for makers. One of the drivers of workplace safety disasters is brands forcing factories to produce clothing at prices that are too low to support sustainable and ethical production.
8-5-21 – PVH (Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, etc.) have made NO commitment to extend and expand the Bangladesh Accord on Fire & Building Safety, which has protected the lives of millions of garment makers in Bangladesh over eight years. They are on the negative side of our Accord Tracker and their lack of commitment to this binding agreement gets them a “No” under our Sign Enforceable Contracts action.
