Key technical and implementation partners

We work closely at global and country levels with:

Better Work is a partnership between the United Nation’s International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group. The comprehensive programme brings together all levels of the global garment industry to improve working conditions and respect labour rights for workers, while boosting the competitiveness of apparel businesses.

The Better Work approach creates lasting, positive change to supply chains through factory assessments and training, as well as advocacy and research that changes policies, attitudes and behaviours. The programme partners with international brands and operates in nine manufacturing countries.

Better Work is proud to be a convener of diverse groups in order to create positive change within the industry, including digitization of wages and promotion of social security, to stimulate inclusive growth through improved labour conditions and responsible business practices.

Based at the United Nations, the Better Than Cash Alliance is a partnership of governments, companies, and international organizations that accelerates the transition from cash to responsible digital payments to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
