KnowTheChain Apparel & Footwear Action Guide on Supply Chain Forced Labour
Following the release of KnowTheChain's apparel & footwear sector benchmark, KnowTheChain has published a guide for the sector with recommended resources and actions to address supply chain forced labour.
The company action guide is broken out into the seven themes by which companies where benchmarked: commitment and governance; traceability and risk assessment; purchasing practices; recruitment; worker voice; monitoring; and remedy. It gives a summary of practices that can be implemented and provides resources for companies to engage deeper on each theme.
The goal of this company action guide is to advance the efforts of not only the companies benchmarked by KnowTheChain, but of the apparel & footwear sector as a whole. The company action guide is best reviewed alongside KnowTheChain’s apparel & footwear benchmark findings report.
