Help us eradicate acid violence
There are approximately 1,500 recorded acid attacks a year, however this is a vast underestimation. Many attacks are not recorded by relevant government authorities in most countries since acid attacks are not classified as a specific offence.
ASTi has launched a comprehensive report with recommendations for corporations to be aware of their obligations in relation to the handling of acid.
Many industries use acid in some form, but initially we are working to onboard and advise businesses within the textiles and fashion industries about their responsibilities when it comes to ending the easy accessibility of acids in their supply chains.
Please sign the pledge to help us drive urgent change.
A short version of the ASTI report can be downloaded here. The report contains key recommendations and a 'Corporate Toolkit’ of best practices to assist corporates in maintaining the highest standards throughout their acid value chains. The report also provides key information on the legal landscape, relating specifically to mandatory and/or non-mandatory human rights reporting obligations. A full version is available on request.
