THE APPAREL AND FOOTWEAR
SUPPLY CHAIN
TRANSPARENCY PLEDGE

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:

Publish manufacturing sites

The company will publish on its website on a regular basis (such as twice a year) a list naming all sites that manufacture its products. The list should provide the following information in English:

  1. The full name of all authorized production units and 
  2. The site addresses.
  3. The parent company of the business at the site.
  4.  made.
  5.  at each site.

Companies will publish the above information in a spreadsheet or other searchable format.
