Continental Clothing Company Ltd

Continental Clothing Company, a company for promotional garments joined FWF in October 2006.

Brand Performance Check 2016

Continental Clothing Ltd. (Continental) meets most of FWF’s management system requirements and goes beyond some of them. Continental has a relatively small number of suppliers. It sources from five suppliers in India, China, Bangladesh and Turkey. High leverage and long-term relationships with suppliers give the company a strong basis for effectively improving working conditions.

Continental has monitored 91% of its 2015 purchasing volume and therefore meets FWF’s monitoring threshold required of brands in 3+ years of membership. This, in addition to a benchmarking score of 81, places Continental in the Leader category.

Continental has started a living wage project at its main supplier in India. Continental is piloting the approach with 2 so called ‘fair-share’ collections, accounting for 5-10 % of the factory’s production capacity. When the pilot is successful, Continental plans to expand the living wage project to a higher percentage of the factory’s production capacity, which would allow the factory to make further steps towards reaching the living wage benchmark for all workers.

Continental systematically works towards resolution of corrective actions with all of its suppliers. After audits, remediation steps were taken and follow up is closely monitored. However, its supplier in China, accounting for 9% of Continental’s 2015 purchasing volume, is not covered under a proper monitoring system. It has not been audited by FWF and the worker information sheet has not been posted there. FWF expects Continental to effectively address this during 2016. In addition, FWF expects Continental to enroll more suppliers in FWF’s Workplace Education Programme.

Score: 81 Percentage under monitoring: 91% Category: Leader
