“There is still progress to be made across our own supply chain. We are committed to reviewing and improving our practices and collaborating with others to drive change across the industry. Over the period covered by this statement, we took some key steps to achieve this, including:

• Continuing to identify and mitigate modern slavery risk in our supply chain, particularly in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Pg. 14

“Sri Lanka

We identified a further breach in Sri Lanka in 2020, where part of the wages due to workers had not been paid as a result of Covid-19. In 2021, we worked with our suppliers and factories to ensure there were no outstanding arrears and have now confirmed that 100% of wages have been paid. This has now also become a minimum requirement for any new factory to be onboarded.”

The Sri Lanka example is an example of remediation, and the general statement they've provided does not suffice for a Yes
