The Clean Clothes Campaign is a network that campaigns for workers' rights in the supply chains of the international fashion industry.
We want to promote an improvement of the working and living conditions for employees in the textile, sports, shoe and leather industry worldwide.
The global network
The German Campaign was founded in 1996 and is part of the international network of the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC), which was launched in the Netherlands in 1989. More than 200 human rights organisations, women's rights organisations, trade unions, non-governmental organisations and consumers work together within the campaign.
"Especially the cooperation between North and South is one of the great strengths of CCC. The workers in southern countries and the organisations and trade unions that support them are hardly able to implement campaigns against the international textile companies on their own".

"What I find particularly impressive about the Clean Clothes Campaign is the worldwide cooperation, a network of organisations from so many corners of the world, driven by the will to change and made strong together".
