Take action: Transparency now
The lack of information about where our clothes and shoes are made and who made them is a huge barrier to change. Information is power, but brands have it all and workers on the ground have very little. We must make visible the workplaces and people in global supply chains, in order to hold companies to account for their actions. Take action below to call for data to be released. In the end, if companies are doing the right thing, what have they got to hide?

I want to know who made my clothes and shoes, and to have access to data about the conditions where she works, whether she is safe, if she can afford to look after her kids, and lots more besides. If companies were more transparent with this data this would also allow change makers at all levels of supply chains to work together to solve the problems the industry faces in upholding human rights.
Are you willing to help this process by committing to be transparent?
1. Will you commit to annually disclose a spreadsheet with the names, addresses and contact details of supplier facilities, subcontracted suppliers and labour agents managing home-working facilities?
2. Will you publish your social audit reports?
3. Will you report on an annual basis on the impact of your activities on human rights throughout your production network, including explicit reporting on due diligence processes, and on the effectiveness of responses to address adverse impacts on human rights, using measurable indicators?
4. Would you support calls for legislation to create a level playing field for all brands and retailers with garment supply chains to be more transparent?
Thank you for your response.
