Clean Clothes Campaign

The CCC is an international campaign, focused on improving working conditions in the global garment and sportswear industries, and empower the workers in it. There is a Clean Clothes Campaign in 12 European countries. These are Austria, Belgium (North and South), Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Presently the CCC is made up of:

* Autonomous coalitions with NGOs (consumer, research, women's, fair trade and youth organisations, solidarity groups, churches, etc) and trade unions as members in European countries, each with a secretariat, and each sending a representative to the European Coordination Meeting
* CCC 'projects' or 'project groups' or 'task forces' in several garment producing countries (Bulgaria, India)
* A loose, informal international partner network of NGOs, unions, individuals and institutions in most countries where garments are produced.
* An international secretariat

In addition to this they are in close cooperation with

* organisations or coalitions that run similar campaigns in other consumer countries (ex. US groups, Fair Wear in Australia, Ethical Trade Action Group in Canada),
* several NGOs in European countries that do a lot of CCC-related work and may one day establish a complete campaign (Italy, Portugal) and
* the international trade union organisations.

Over 200 different organisations participate in the campaign.

The campaigns work autonomously at the national level, and come together to work jointly at the European level. This European campaign network is backed up by a broader, international network that includes trade unions, NGOs, and individuals in countries where garments are produced, i.e. Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Central America. The international secretariat of the campaign is based in Amsterdam. The CCC also cooperates with similar campaigns in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
