UNICEF Bangladesh has been working with the Ready-Made Garment (RMG) sector since 2015 to understand how the sector’s operations and surrounding environments directly and indirectly impact children’s lives. In 2017, UNICEF established partnerships with 10 of the leading RMG manufacturers in Bangladesh as part of the Children's Rights & Business Program for the Garment Industry implemented by The Centre. These manufacturers are committed to fully exploring their impact on children and to use these insights to inform the development of child and family-friendly business policies and practices.
Each of these 10 enterprises has undertaken an in-depth baseline assessment of its business operations regarding children’s rights. Based on this, they have developed bespoke action plans to address key areas of impact. Going forward, the 10 companies will be actively monitoring the impact of their action in terms of outcomes for both children and business. They are the pioneers of Better Business for Children in Bangladesh.
This report presents the results of worker surveys conducted as part of the in-depth baseline assessments. It highlights key aggregated findings from direct engagement with more than 1,000 randomly selected workers.
