Company Pledge Against Forced Labor in the Uzbek Cotton Sector
Stay tuned for an upcoming pledge on cotton from Turkmenistan.
We, the undersigned companies are working to ensure that forced labor does not find its way into our products. We are aware of reports documenting the systemic use of forced labor in the harvest of cotton in Uzbekistan. We are collaborating with a multi-stakeholder coalition to raise awareness of this very serious concern, and press for its elimination.
As a signatory to this pledge, we are stating our firm opposition to the use of forced labor in the harvest of Uzbek cotton. We commit to not knowingly source Uzbek cotton for the manufacturing of any of our products until the Government of Uzbekistan ends the practice of forced labor in its cotton sector. Until the elimination of this practice is independently verified by the International Labor Organization, we will maintain this pledge.
The following companies have taken our pledge to eliminate Uzbek cotton from their supply chains. Explore our list of signatories to see if your favorite brands and retailers have joined us!
