The Cotton On Group is committed to the journey towards paying a living wage.

The concept of a living wage is a complex one and we recognise that individually our impact may be limited; that without buy-in from major players globally the realisation of living wages for all cannot be timely or sustainable.

Although there is currently no global solution to this challenge we are working collaboratively with global and market-specific NGOs, other retailers, trade unions, regulators and governing bodies to develop the tools and support necessary for the successful transition from minimum wages to living wages.

As a proud member of Action Collaboration Transformation (ACT), the Group is committed to working with fellow signatories towards the establishment of industry wide collective bargaining to create positive change to the way wages and working conditions are set. This ground-breaking agreement between retailers and trade unions exists to transform the garment and textile industry with a goal of achieving living wages for all workers.

This will directly support the Group’s own journey toward paying fair wages.
