THE APPAREL AND FOOTWEAR
This Transparency Pledge helps demonstrate apparel and footwear companies’ commitment towards greater transparency in their manufacturing supply chain.
Transparency of a company’s manufacturing supply chain better enables a company to collaborate with civil society in identifying, assessing, and avoiding actual or potential adverse human rights impacts. This is a critical step that strengthens a company’s human rights due diligence.
Each company participating in this Transparency Pledge commits to taking at least the following steps within three months of committing to it:

- The parent company of the business at the site.
- at each site.
Companies will publish the above information in a spreadsheet or other searchable format.Align with the pledge
