“The OIP (Oblate International Pastoral Investment Trust) has been a leader in the effort to address the abuses in the ready-made Garment sector in Bangladesh for a number of years but in particular since the devastating tragedy at the Rana Plaza factory a few years ago that resulted in the loss of over 1,100 lives and multiple serious injuries.
