Benetton to build roadmap towards living wage for women across supplier base

Italian clothing brand Benetton is extending a relationship with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, which will see it build a roadmap to achieve a living wage for women across its supplier base.

The company said that women represent more than 80% of the global textile and garment supply chain workforce, with plans to implement the programme across its supplier countries.

It said that it is focusing on women because they are the “real agents of economic and social change”.

Benetton has not revealed which countries will be affected, the living wage that it is working towards or a timeline for the project.

The full details of the partnership will be revealed in April.
