Adopting a Multi-Pillar Approach to Achieve Living Wages in Supply Chains

As part of its commitment to ensuring workers across its supply chain are paid a living wage, Inditex has established multiple pillars in its Code of Conduct for Manufacturers. These pillars include promoting collective bargaining, responsible purchasing practices, improved working methods and systems, collaboration with other stakeholders and support campaigns. Collectively these elements drive the improvement of living wage standards. Additionally, Inditex participates in the Action, Collaboration, Transformation agreement (ACT) launched in 2014 between large brands and trade unions to support the collective bargaining rights of apparel industry workers, which supports the goal of increasing living wages in the apparel sector.
