WASHINGTON — The momentum for brands to address working conditions in Bangladesh is snowballing.
On Tuesday, 10 more European brands and retailers, including Carrefour, Marks & Spencer, Benetton and Mango, as well as Canada’s Loblaw Cos., owner of Joe Fresh, signed or committed to sign the binding Bangladesh fire and safety accord with unions. They signed on even as U.S. companies scrambled to come up with their own united response.
