The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) was founded in the Netherlands in 1989 as Schone Kleren Campagne. We have since expanded to become a global network of over 235 organisations operating in over 45 countries. The CCC Network connects actors across the garment and sportswear industry, linking homebased worker organisations, grass-roots unions, women's organisations and trade unions, to labour rights and feminist organisations, CSOs and activists in both garment-producing and consumer market countries.
In 2016, labour NGOs from Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Taiwan formed the Clean Clothes Campaign East Asia Coalition (CCCEA) to strengthen the cooperation within the region to work on various issues, in particular freedom of association, labour rights and occupational health and safety across countries.
CCC is dedicated to improving working conditions and empowering workers in the global garment and sportswear industries.Other than supporting workers' cases, CCC also advocate for greater transparency in garment supply chain, living wage for workers, and freedom of association.
