COVID-19 RESPONSE

 

 

STATEMENT ON COMMITMENT TO ETHICAL PRODUCTION AND HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE COVID-19 CONTEXT

 

 

Mighty Good Basics acknowledges the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the nature of work and life, experiences of inequality and personal and health security for everyone around the world. As a committed ethical producer we are compelled and obligated to understand the implications this has on our supply chain, and how we can fulfil our moral responsibilities to suppliers, workers, customers and the industry in this context (beyond basic minimum legal standards applying to all businesses). The below resolutions reflect initial evidence emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, which is only beginning to be grasped around the world.

In light of the above, Mighty Good Basics:

  1. Acknowledges the ways the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting people differently, including the disproportionate impacts of the crisis on the poor and most vulnerable in every economy, and that COVID-19 has complex and concerning implications for global aspirations to reduce poverty and inequality and eliminate modern slavery. 
  2. Notes with concern that garment workers as a population group – the majority of whom are women – often face multiple fields of disadvantage and compounding experiences of inequality, likely to be exacerbated long-term by this crisis[1]. An ethical response to the pandemic by businesses must address this specific and persistent inequality in the garment/manufacturing industry.
  3. Pledges to assess our practices and operations periodically, as evidence of the impact of COVID-19 on our supply chain becomes available, and as manufacturing partners move beyond the immediate crisis response period, and look to support workers to safely return to work.
  4. Supports open and honest communication with our suppliers regarding the impact of the pandemic on their business operations and social safeguards, to ensure partners do not feel pressured to continue operating in a way that places workers’ safety at risk, in the interest of meeting unfair deadlines (including by MGB not breaking existing order commitments or payment schedules).
  5. Commits to ensuring reporting and transparency requirements do not burden suppliers in a way that distracts from social protection and that workers’ health, rights, security and safety remains at the core of our manufacturing, production, distribution and general operations.
  6. Will uphold existing efforts to ensure our business response to COVID-19 is ethical, human-centred and evidence-based, including (where appropriate and feasible) re-examining community impact partnerships as and community contributions.
