German supermarket Lidl joins ACT

Lidl is estimated to be the 5th biggest grocery chain in the world and the first German discounter to commit to ACT.

“Joining ACT is the next step in our commitment to tackling the topic of wage fairness, jointly with all participating stakeholders, even more effectively,” saysStefan Haensel, Director CSR, Buying International at Lidl.

ACT members are working together to improve wages in the global garment and footwear industry through improved purchasing practices linked to collective bargaining agreements aiming to implement the human right to living wages.

“Lidl deciding to commit to ACT demonstrates ACT’s credibility as the most promising means of delivering sustainable wage increases in the garment supply chain,” says Jenny Holdcroft, Assistant General Secretary IndustrIALL.
