Brand-Supplier meetings in Pakistan highlight collaboration opportunities on workplace health and safety

March 28, 2024

The International Accord Secretariat alongside the Pakistan Accord team organised a series of five brand-supplier meetings in Lahore and Karachi between 5 – 7 March 2024.

The purpose of these meetings was to to provide information about the Accord and its key programs for suppliers, and enhance engagement between brands that have signed the Pakistan Accord and their Pakistani suppliers. A supplier/factory becomes part of the Accord program in Pakistan once a brand sourcing from them signs the Pakistan Accord and lists it as a supplier.

The Accord team comprising presentations by Clara Kamphorst (Stakeholder Engagement Manager), Koen Oosterom (Head of Signatory Engagement), Veronique Camerer (Deputy Director, International Accord), Kirstine Drew (Chief Complaints Officer, Pakistan Accord), and Zulfiqar Shah (Country Manager, Pakistan Accord) shared insights on:

  • The health and safety topics covered under the Pakistan Accord.
  • The impact of the program for suppliers and the support available for them.
  • The features, programs, and reasons to participate in the Pakistan Accord.

The sessions were attended by over 100 Pakistani suppliers and Pakistan Accord signatory brands including Boohoo, Adidas, Primark, and GAP.

We thank all attendees for their participation in these meetings and look forward to our continued engagement.
