Company Response

Daewoo International's response

It is certain...that Nike produces...shoes by using the material supplied by Busan Factory, made of synthetic fibers which are absolutely not related to cotton, and Busan Factory’s business has entirely nothing to do with cotton produced in Uzbekistan...We have been using our best efforts to watch and correct the practices of forced labor in Uzbekistan and have made a lot of efforts to communicate and cooperate with Cotton Campaign in various ways to solve forced labor issue...We would like you to note that Daewoo has done everything in its capacity to prevent forced labor and enhance environmental and human rights policies in Uzbekistan. Daewoo is fully committed to applying and operating transparent policies in connection with all of its domestic and foreign businesses
