El Corte Ingles' response
Author: El Corte Ingles, Published on: 29 March 2019
As signatories of both the 2013 Accord and the 2018 Transition Accord in Bangladesh, we are committed to the respect of workers rights in the Bangladesh RMG Industry, to the extent that the company is actually represented in the Bangladesh Accord Steering Committee.
Our CSR policy (https://www.elcorteingles.es/recursos/informacioncorporativa/doc/portal/2018/03/14/corporate-social-responsibility-policy.pdf) clearly states the commitment to respect Labour and Human Rights, with a highlight on Fundamental ILO Conventions.
Implementation of this policy is also performed through our involvement as members of amfori, which provides a platform to monitor safety and working conditions through social audits that seek conformity under 13 chapters including health and safety, remuneration, non discrimition and the rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining. Further, when a claim is raised, with work closely with the unions and our stakeholders in ensuring workers' rights are respected.
You can find further supporting information in our 2017 Non Financial Report (https://www.elcorteingles.es/informacioncorporativa/en/financial-information/annual-activity-report/). On pages 31-33 your will find our commitments in the value chain, with a special focus on Bangladesh. Our 2018 Non Financial Report, with further information, should be available by the end of May.
