US-based Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) has ordered an investigation into working of Page Industries
after Norway’s $1 trillion sovereign wealth fund dropped Page from its investment portfolio due to concerns of human rights violations at “Unit-III” – one of Page’s Jockey manufacturing sites in Bangalore.
Page Industries has denied wrongdoing and called allegations of verbal abuse and workplace intimidation against employees “outrageous.
“Should the facility refuse to remediate such non-compliances or should the remediation efforts be insufficient, WRAP will revoke the facility’s certification.
In case any non-compliance noted prove to be so egregious as to leave no room for remediation, WRAP reserves the right to immediately suspend the facility’s certificate.
