Atelier Ethical is supporting the new Child Labor Free global accreditation for designers, brands and businesses. Launched on World Day Against Child Labour 2015, the accreditation is available for all industry and product categories, using a three step process of assessment including manufacturing, component and source. Child Labor Free will become a globally recognized product mark for brands and consumers.

Atelier Ethical have sent out a message to our network of over 13,800 fashion professionals including well known designers and brands, to do what we can to help raise awareness within the fashion industry and encourage brands to consider applying for accreditation. It is an opportunity for businesses to promote sustainability in their supply chain and gain a marketable advantage over competitors. Would you like to be among the first businesses in your country to become CLF accredited?

UNICEF estimate over 150 million children worldwide are trapped in child labor, amounting to 11% of the global child population according to the International Labour Organization (ILO). Child Labor Free describes it’s mission as ‘A consumer led movement for positive change’ and that ‘consumers and companies can work together’ to make a difference and have a positive impact on the statistics. In the fashion industry we have all seen that consumer pressure and the subsequent media attention is what forced brands to acknowledge responsibility for their part in the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse. From urging them to sign the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety, contributing to the victims and survivors fund, to a successful petition asking Benetton to pay a significant contribution towards the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund two years after the tragedy killing 1134 people and injuring 2500.

The most powerful aspect of this accreditation is it’s sole focus on children. Now there is the World’s first professional verification process of it’s kind, it will become more difficult for brands to deny responsibility or dismiss the possibility of child labor in their supply chain. The message is clear- is a particular brand Child Labor Free or not? Businesses have the power to help eradicate Child Labor. All they need to do is support the movement by starting the journey to become Child Labor Free accredited.
