A group of fashion brands and retailers have formed an alliance to highlight their contribution to European competitiveness and employment.
The European Branded Clothing Alliance comprises businesses that operate significant global supply chains. Members include IC Companys, Inditex, Cortefiel Group, Levi Strauss & Co., Mango, Next, Nike and VF Corporation.
The alliance will serve as a sounding board for EU policy-makers developing trade policies. It aims to raise the awareness of the economic contribution of the retail clothing sector to the European economy, and work with EU decision-makers to advocate a progressive trade agenda.
It will also highlight members' commitment to maintain high standards of corporate responsibility.
