There is no perfect factory or farm. Local issues and cultural norms - combined with global factors such as economic pressure and consumer demand - result in new and ever-changing threats to workers' rights each day. International supply chains are so complex that it would be impossible for any individual organization or person to solve these problems alone. FLA affiliates include companies, universities and civil society organizations that are committed to protecting workers' rights by promoting adherence to international labor standards. These diverse stakeholders draw on FLA's expertise and learn from each others' experiences to develop ethical and equitable supply chains. Learn more about the efforts of FLA affiliates below and see the impact of our work.
