The Better Work Program

Six of the biggest U.S. companies are backing an international program to improve compliance with labor standards and competitiveness in the factories where some of their products are made.

The six companies – Gap Inc., Jones Apparel Group Inc., Levi Strauss & Co., Nike, Walmart and The Walt Disney Company – will collectively contribute more than $1 million to Better Work, a unique joint program on the International Labor Organization and the International Finance Corporation, the private sector lending arm of the World Bank.

These contributions will support the development of assessment and training tools that will have direct impacts in supplier factories.Most of the company contributions will be administered by the United States Council Foundation (USCF).
