"Since 2012, LS&Co. has been a signatory to the industry’s Uzbek Cotton Pledge, coordinated by the Cotton Campaign. In 2018, we also became a signatory to the newly introduced Turkmen Cotton Pledge. As an early signatory to both Pledges, we publicly stated our firm opposition to the use of forced labor in Uzbekistan's and Turkmenistan’s cotton production." (p. 6)



"We committed to not knowingly sourcing Uzbek and Turkmen cotton for the manufacturing of any of our products, until the governments of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan end the practice of forced labor in their cotton sectors. These Pledges are in alignment with LS&Co.' sourcing bans, which are already outlined in our TOE." (p. 7)
