hummel joins forces with leading fashion brands to ensure worker safety in Pakistan by joining the new, expanded ‘International Accord for Health and Safety in the Textile Industry’. 

The Danish sportwear brand, hummel, has taken another step forward in its commitment to worker safety by signing the Pakistan Accord. This initiative, which is part of the expanded ‘International Accord for Health and Safety in the Textile Industry,’ aims to ensure a safe environment for workers in the textile and garment sector in Pakistan. 

hummel’s existing membership in the International Accord in Bangladesh emphasizes the brand’s responsibility of promoting worker safety, and this new initiative serves as a further continuation of those efforts.

“Pakistan is one of our main supplier countries, and that’s also why it is crucial for us to partake in the Pakistan program. This program reflects our beliefs and strengthens our dedication of creating positive change in the industry," says hummel CEO, Allan Vad Nielsen, and continues:

"We view both our employees and those involved in the production of our products as our most precious resource. Ensuring their health and safety will always be our top concern, and this agreement further underlines our commitment to the workers in Pakistan.”

The International Accord is a legally binding agreement between retailers and global unions, and as a member, hummel is committed to ensuring that its factories meet the highest standards of worker safety.

The aim is to ensure that the buildings used by hummel’s manufacturers meet safety standards in terms of construction, electricity, and fire protection.

“We are proud to be part of the expanding community of companies dedicated to enhancing the working conditions in the industry, and we look forward to working closely with The International Accord and other signatories to create a better future for workers in Pakistan,” says Allan Vad Nielsen.

By becoming a member of the Pakistan Accord, hummel joins companies such as Bestseller, H&M, Otto Group, and CNA in their effort to create a safer work environment for labourers in Pakistan.
