H&M's response to allegations of abuses in Myanmar garment factories - September Update


In each of the cases raised by the BHRRC, we were informed directly and were able to react immediately to seek a solution. All issues reported to us have already been resolved, often thanks to close cooperation between local trade unions, our suppliers and the local H&M Group team at the production office in Yangon. Our team is closely and regularly following up with suppliers to ensure that any violations are identified and appropriately remedied.
