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 robust 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. 

Reasonable lead times ensure that suppliers can fulfill contracted orders without incurring excessive overtime or otherwise increasing their risk of worker abuse. Reasonable and sustainable order placement also reduces risk of worker abuse by allowing suppliers to responsibly schedule shifts and product output, as well as payroll and other expenses.


Methodology

Use publicly available reports from the brand OR third-party reported information for the Project JUST category: Social to answer this question. Visit the brand’s website or conduct a browser search to find Annual, Integrated, CR Reports, policies, statements or codes that address sustainable lead times.
