Who has paid and who is dragging their heels

Despite that it's been 2 years since the devastating collapse of the Rana Plaza building, the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund - set up by the ILO to collect funds for compensation - still has yet to receive the $30 million needed to compensate all the victims full and fairly.

Brands must act now to ensure that the funding gap is immediately filled!
Without full compensation, families cannot rebuild their lives.

For more information about the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund - established by the ILO to collect donations for compensation - and detailed information about company contributions, please download this briefing: Compensating the Victims of Rana Plaza: Resolving the Funding Crisis

The Donor Trust Fund is open for voluntary donations and it is up to the donor to decide if they want to make their contribution public. This list is based on the latest information we have on public donations.

US $30 million

The families of those affected by the Rana Plaza collapse are owed $30 million in compensation.

In order to collect the money needed to compensate the victims’ families, the International Labour Organization, a UN agency, created the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund in January 2014. All those affected by the disaster can file compensation claims under The Arrangement – a process that has been accepted as a legitimate framework for compensation by international experts and has the backing of every major player in the industry, including a number of Rana Plaza brands, the Bangladesh government, the trade unions and the Bangladesh garment industry. Despite this, many well-known high street brands who were sourcing at Rana Plaza continue to remain extremely reluctant to make any sort of contribution.

The compensation process is explained in this short video: http://www.cleanclothes.org/ranaplaza/dr-mojtaba-kazarzi
All brands in Bangladesh should contribute according to their ability to pay, the size of their relationship with Bangladesh and their relationship with Rana Plaza.

Furthermore, all brands have a responsibility to ensure that the Fund receives US $30 million by the second anniversary of the collapse of Rana Plaza.

To date the fund only needs $9 million to fulfill all the compensation claims, making further contributions all the more vital. Without it families cannot rebuild their lives.

Brands must act now and pay up what is long overdue!
