Project JUST was created to transform the fashion industry into a transparent, accountable and sustainable system that celebrates the stories, the people and the resources behind the clothing.

To do so, they developed a well-regarded methodology for researching brands and their sustainability practices for their searchable brand directory. The directory provides comparable research on brands to empower shoppers to make more informed and ethical purchasing decisions and to put pressure on brands to improve their practices.

While Project JUST dissolved in 2018, the research methodology can be continued through data contributions on WikiRate. 

This metric falls within the Social section of questions, which looks at how a brand is treating the people in its supply chain. 

A migrant worker is a person who moves from place to place to get work; a person who either migrates within their home country or outside of it to pursue work, such as seasonal work. This metric is asking whether the brand specifically addresses migrant workers in their supplier policies, assuming that this is a salient issue for the brand.


Methodology

Use publicly available reports from the brand OR third-party reported information for the Project JUST category: SocialVisit the brand’s website or conduct a browser search to find a Corporate Responsibility Report, or any information on their CSR or sustainability policies that address migrant worker protection in the supply chain.
