Feb 12 | 08:30 - 09:45

PRE-FORUM BREAKFAST SESSION: Investor action on living wages: Advancing better value distribution in the garment and footwear supply chain through meaningful engagement

Room: CC10


Partner: Platform for Living Wages During this breakfast session, investor-members of the Platform Living Wage Financials (PLWF) will introduce their proprietary methodology to assess investee companies on living wage and track their progress. They will share the 2019 assessment results of garment & footwear companies on living wage and the trends and concrete improvements the investor coalition has seen since 2018. Which companies have improved the most? Which multi-stakeholder collaborations are most apt to facilitate sector-wide improvement? Along with the audience, the PLWF will discuss how the coalition could expand its impact, activate the financial sector on its role in promoting living wages and, ultimately, ensure better value distribution in the garment & footwear supply chain.
