ASOS extends ties with Anti-Slavery International

ASOS has agreed a new three-year partnership with Anti-Slavery International to accelerate their dual objective of stamping out forced labour around the world.

ASOS’ Fashion With Integrity (FWI) 2030 programme sets out to minimise the firm’s impact on the environment and deliver positive benefits for workers, whilst Anti-Slavery International’s recent five-year strategy covers common ground by pledging to address child slavery, responsible business, migration and trafficking.

Leading up to 2025, a core priority within Anti-Slavery International’s focus on responsible business is to bring about stronger legal frameworks to address the global systems that enable forced labour in supply chains. This entails ensuring people have rights to decent work and companies are obliged to take meaningful action to eliminate slavery in supply chains; and strengthening access to remedy and justice for workers, in particular people in situations of slavery and forced labour.

Simon Platts, Responsible Sourcing Director, ASOS said: “Our new, three-year partnership with Anti-Slavery International builds on the solid foundation of collaboration and ‘critical friendship’ that we’ve established in our work together since 2017. With dedicated resource and the opportunity to work together to drive change at scale, this new agreement takes things to the next level – and we’re so excited to be hitting the ground running in 2022.”

Jasmine O’Connor, CEO, Anti-Slavery International said: “Our ‘critical friendship’ with ASOS means that we can continue our work together to push for a fairer, more sustainable fashion industry that no longer relies on forced labour. We know that the fashion industry has a huge impact on people and planet, and we are looking forward to working with ASOS for much-needed industry wide change.”
