The Pledge, the heart of The Model’s Health Pledge platform, contains thirteen promises to improve the health of models and to pursue healthy working conditions for everyone working in the fashion industry. It is the basis of this intention that is expressed by all affiliated companies to promote health. By signing this pledge, organisations and individuals consciously promise to care for their personal body and minds as well as that of all their employees and contractors.
The pledge has been developed based on the objectives of ‘Alles is Gezondheid’ (‘Health is Everything’), that is part of the National Prevention Programme. The ultimate goal is to make the Netherlands healthier and more vital. The thirteen promises of The Model’s Health Pledge are specifically focused on the fashion industry; they have been developed in collaboration with companies and stakeholders in this industry. The promises are evaluated and expanded on a yearly basis to realistically improve the health level within the fashion industry step-by-step.
The Model’s Health Pledge is a collaboration of over 60 companies that have signed the Pledge, of which more than 30 companies support the platform. This network has already committed to responsible working environments themselves; improving and safeguarding these good working conditions is paramount. In addition, the signatories endeavor to raise awareness of all stakeholders in the industry about the importance of healthy working conditions. The Advisory Board and Confidentiality Committee, as well as experts and partners, support The Model’s Health Pledge from their own expertise. Together these parties form the basis of the The Model’s Health Pledge platform. Each year they will report on the steps taken to improve the industry. The network gladly welcomes more signatories!
The Model’s Health Pledge is an online platform and reporting point for misconduct, initiated and implemented by a network of fashion professionals. We advocate good working conditions in the fashion industry. For the industry, by the industry!
We can only achieve our mission of improving models’ health and a healthy working environment in the fashion industry by collaborating with as many parties as possible.
Did you or someone close to you experience an unhealthy working situation in the fashion industry? Here you can (anonymously) report these worrying working conditions.
