Today – 16 November – websites around the world will go dark, out of protest and solidarity. Protest against the powers and forces that limit our universal liberties and silence us. And in solidarity with activists, human rights defenders who stand up for these freedoms. Sometimes paying with the ultimate price - their lives.

Join us in action today – go to www.togetherwespeak.org and see what you can do.

Bel & Bo Performance Check 2016

Bel & Bo Performance Check 2016

Bel&Bo’s first year of membership. Bel&Bo is in process of implementing FWFs management system requirements. Together with meeting the requirements for monitoring in low risk countries (9% of their 2015 volume) and external audits that meet FWF’s quality standards (27% of their 2015 volume), Bel&Bo comes to a monitoring threshold of 41%, which is above the required 40% monitoring threshold for members after their first year of membership.

Bel&Bo’s main production countries are Turkey, China, India and Bangladesh. The company has a relatively large number of suppliers, including both main suppliers and subcontractors. In the assessed financial year, Bel&Bo has put effort in consolidating its supplier base, to increase control of production locations and to decrease risks of labour violations.

Bel&Bo has systematically worked on collecting and assessing external audit reports, as well as following up on the ones that met most of FWF’s quality standards.

FWF very much encourages Bel&Bo’s effort to consolidate and identify production locations. FWF encourages Bel&Bo to continue this process and systemize using the evaluation of labour standards in decision making of consolidation.

Bel&Bo is recommended to motivate a selection of preferred suppliers and subcontractors to participate in WEP trainings.

Score: 48 Percentage under monitoring: 41% Category: Good
