The fourth annual report of the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety released Wednesday morning in Dhaka listed 234 factories as having completed their safety requirements, and the suspension of 162 non-compliant factories from the Alliance list of 658 factories in the country.
The Alliance, a group of 29 global retailers that have undertaken to improve the safety of factories they source from in Bangladesh, is made up of mostly North American brands and retailers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Target Corp., Gap Inc., and VF Corp. The five-year agreement by the group was made shortly after the collapse of the nine-story apparel manufacturing building Rana Plaza in April 2013, which killed more than 1,100 workers.
