Bettina Musiolek was one of the founders of the German platform for the Clean Clothes Campaign in 1995. As she says, the economist works at the interfaces between business, society and politics. She is the coordinator for Europe South / East for the Clean Clothes Campaign. The human rights initiative campaigns for the rights of workers in the supply chains of the international fashion industry. “It needs rules of the game that apply to everyone,” she says, and calls for a supply chain law, “so that human rights violations are really punished.” Bettina Musiolek also works as a consultant for “Business and Human Rights” for the Development Policy Network Saxony (ENS), an association of Groups, initiatives and associations in the federal state of Saxony that are committed to sustainable development and global justice.
“There will no longer be a fashion brand saying that they have no responsibility in the supply chain.”
Bettina Musiolek has been visiting production companies for 25 years and says: “Thanks to the Clean Clothes Campaign, the fashion industry is the most advanced branch: The structure of actors and the awareness of the fashion brands about their human rights responsibilities and the importance of stakeholder discussions are relatively well developed . No more fashion brands will stand up and say they have no responsibility in the supply chain.”
