* The employee figures are mainly taken from the respective company's website. The overview shows the number of employees who are directly employed by a company. Most agreements have also effects on sub-contracting companies and suppliers. In these cases the number of people affected by the agreement is of course higher.

** The IKEA agreement covers also the suppliers to IKEA and the whole supply chain as well as the IKEA owned Swedwood-Group. Alltogether about 1.000.000 employees might be covered.

*** The IFA is valid for the companies in the supply chain providing Inditex with products.
