Who paid up and who failed to take responsibility?

In June 2015, more than 2 years since the devastating collapse of the Rana Plaza building, the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund finally reached the $30 million needed to compensate all the survivors and affected families full and fairly. The Donor Trust Fund was open for voluntary donations and it was up to the donor to decide if they want to make their contribution public. This list is based on the information we have on public donations.

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 see this briefing: Compensating the Victims of Rana Plaza: Resolving the Funding Crisis. An appraisal three years after can be found here.

See here an overview of brands that were linked to the Rana building as well as brands that have a sourcing relationship with Bangladesh and are called upon to donate in that capacity.

For an overview also including payments regarding the Tazreen factory fire, transparency and adherence to the Bangladesh Accord please see this chart made by ILRF. 

The table below lists those brands that have been linked with factories in the Rana Plaza building.
Other brands that have not been linked to Rana Plaza, including H&M, Gap and N Brown have also made donations to the Fund. See a full list on the website of the Rana Plaza Arrangement.
