Investor statement on the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster

Five years have passed since the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory complex in Bangladesh resulting in over 1,100 garment workers killed and 2,600 injured.  This massive tragedy drew attention to pervasive human rights abuses in the garment sector, as well as the failure of the Bangladesh government and corporations sourcing there to create workplaces that respect and protect the lives of workers, and mitigate the risk to companies and their investors.
