Supply chain transparency has recently come to forefront of discussions about human rights and sustainability in the fashion industry. Many fashion brands do not know their own supply chain and this hinders workers from receiving fair working conditions and prevents consumers from being able to make ethical fashion choices. Although fashion brands have begun to disclose data on garment producers, little attention has been paid to role that investors can play in the fashion supply chain.
This project is a collaboration between Clean Clothes Campaign, OpenCorporates and WikiRate that seeks to turn the spotlight on investors both in terms of responsible investment behaviour and the collection of relationship data between investors and fashion brands. The focus is on the investors of the Top100 fashion companies - a list compiled by FashionUnited of the 100 largest fashion companies in the world.
