BAPTIST WORLD AID AUSTRALIA
Behind the Barcode
Baptist World Aid is a Christian charity organisation based in Australia, helping to dramatically reduce poverty in communities around the world. Behind the Barcode is a project of Baptist World Aid Australia.
Behind the Barcode is a series of industry reports which seek to empower consumers to purchase ethically and, by doing so, encourage companies to ensure workers are protected and not harmed; that they are rewarded, not exploited; and that they can work free from the tyranny of modern slavery. The guides grade fashion brands according to the systems they have in place to protect the workers in their supply chain from exploitation, forced labour and child labour.
Fashion Revolution, established in 2013 after the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh, is a global movement encouraging international and local fashion brands to demonstrate commitment to transparency and responsibility across the length of the fashion value chain, from farmers to factory workers, brands to buyers and of course consumers.
Composed of key figures from the fashion industry and beyond: industry leaders; press; campaigners; consultants; representatives from charities, campaign organisations and parliament, academics and more, it co-ordinates action and advocacy in over 90 countries to engage community and industry around the issues of transparency and traceability in the fashion supply chain.
