Brazilian Association for Textile Retail (ABVTEX)



Certificate Description

The ABVTEX Certification Program evaluates and addresses issues related to working conditions in the retail supply chain through the certification of suppliers and their subcontractors.

This initiative, arising from the concern of retailers and consumers, created a new governance environment in the fashion value chain. It seeks to improve labor relations and ensure better safety conditions for workers by means of audits performed by independent bodies at the suppliers and their subcontracted parties.

The program was developed by the Brazilian Association of Textile Retail (ABVTEX), a body that brings together the most representative national and international networks of fashion retail, selling items of clothing, footwear, bags and accessories as well as soft furnishing for homes.
