Company Pledge Against Forced Labor in the Cotton Sector of Turkmenistan
Thank you for your interest in signing the Turkmen Cotton Pledge, hosted by Responsible Sourcing Network (RSN). The Government of Turkmenistan has been orchestrating an industry-wide system of forced labor of adults and children in its cotton industry over the past few decades, and human rights defenders in Turkmenistan are calling on the international community to assist in eliminating this egregious abuse. Details can be found on the Cotton Campaign’s website (http://www.cottoncampaign.org/turkmenistans-forced-labor-problem.html).



PLEDGE AGAINST FORCED LABOR IN THE TURKMEN COTTON SECTOR

We, the undersigned companies are working to ensure that forced labor does not find its way into our products. We are aware of reports documenting the systemic use of forced labor in Turkmenistan’s cotton production. We are collaborating with a multi-stakeholder coalition to raise awareness of this very serious concern, and press for its elimination.

As a signatory to this pledge, we are stating our firm opposition to the use of forced labor in Turkmenistan’s cotton production. We commit to not knowingly source Turkmen cotton for the manufacturing of any of our products until the Government of Turkmenistan ends the practice of forced labor in its cotton sector. Until the elimination of this practice is independently verified by the International Labour Organization, as well as determined by the Cotton Campaign, we will maintain this pledge.
