CANBERRA - The Australian government has promised to provide AU$2 million (US$1.43m) annually for three years to the Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) accreditation body which works to protect the rights of the country's garment workers.

ECA said the money would allow it to accredit more businesses by auditing their manufacturing operations to ensure that all workers are paid the minimum wage, receive all legal entitlements and work in safe conditions.

As well as protecting the rights of garment workers, ECA advises consumers on sustainability issues and monitors companies' environmental claims for 'greenwashing' and other misleading statements.
