Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Abercrombie & Fitch's response

Author: spokesperson of Abercrombie & Fitch, Published on: 23 March 2020

Per A&F Co.’s published Vendor Code of Conduct, we do not tolerate use of forced labor and the safety, security and welfare of the people with whom we work is a priority. Our sourcing and sustainability teams closely monitor our network of suppliers to ensure we only work with organizations aligned with our principles and values.

A&F shared with APSI that as part of our regular review of our global supply chain, we decided to stop sourcing from the spinner (detailed on page 32) from 2020 onwards for any of our company’s brands.

However, we were not asked prior to publication about the two other factories listed in the report as our suppliers. We followed up with ASPI after publication to confirm that we do not believe we source from either of the factories listed as supplying us. They made an update to its report on March 3, 2020 (page 38 and 39).
