AMSTERDAM - The Clean Clothes Campaign has welcomed EU proposals for a new 'flagship' initiative on responsible management of the supply chain in the global garment sector – but warned that such an initiative must have genuine legislative teeth because voluntary initiatives led by brands do not work. "The 25 years of experience of the CCC, tackling violations of human rights in the global garment supply chain has shown that voluntary initiatives driven by buyers and companies have failed to fight the systemic abuses of human rights in this industry," said the Dutch-based NGO, responding to the proposed EU initiative.
