Fashion Revolution Zoom call

To remember and respect the fact that 7 years has passed since the Rana Plaza disaster, but stuck in lockdown, Rachel Wilshaw from Oxfam and Judith Condor-Vidal from Trading for Development set up a Zoom meeting across continents to hear what is happening and see what can be done.

Oxford is a Fair Tax Council

Royal Borough of Greenwich has recently become the first in London to commit to the Declaration and joins Oxford, Oldham, Peterborough, Cannock Chase and Bingley as the sixth council to stand up for responsible tax conduct.

By approving the Councils for Fair Tax Declaration a Council demonstrates that it is:

  • leading by example on its own tax conduct
  • demanding greater transparency from suppliers
  • calling for more meaningful powers to tackle tax avoidance amongst suppliers when buying goods and services.
