The ETN Living Wage Wednesdays aims to increase our members’ knowledge about living wages, and provide practical advice and inspiration as to how a purchasing company can work to enable and implement the payment of living wages in their supply chain. The series entails members meetings with presentations by external experts, to enable dialogue, discussions and sharing of lessons learned and best practice. We aim to keep the sessions practical, leaving substantial time for questions from our members, to strive towards providing relevant knowledge for your company, supply chain and business model.
Nudie Jeans: Living wage journey and approach
30 March 2022 – 09.00-10.30 – Norwegian / Swedish
Speaker: Sandya Lang, Sustainability Manager at Nudie Jeans
Sandya will share her experiences from coordinating the living wage efforts by Nudie Jeans. Nudie has been referred to as an example of best practice on living wages in several guidance papers and articles. In collaboration with Fairwear, Nudie Jeans has utilised a method of paying a premium to cover their share in the gap between actual wages and living wages, where the premium is distributed equally to all the workers at the factory. Sandya has valuable first-hand experience, being involved in Nudie Jeans’ first pilot project on living wages in India, and until today where she has among others coordinated living wage action on behalf of several brands, ensuring all workers are paid a living wage at a production site in Turkey.
The event is for members of Ethical Trade Norway and it is free.
