Boohoo publishes list of 1,100 suppliers
Boohoo Group has today published a list of 1,100 factories it uses, following its pledge to be more transparent about its supply chain.
The Manchester-headquartered listed company has said the move meets its transparency pledge to publish it within 12 months of the Independent Review produced by Alison Levitt QC.
Boohoo said it had achieved 28 of 34 recommendations by the independent review, the implementation of which is being overseen by KPMG. It said the remainder would be completed in the next few months.
Boohoo Group’s Agenda for Change programme is being overseen by Sir Brian Leveson, whose fourth report has also been published today. Leveson’s comments include:
“To such extent as Boohoo can seek to address and resolve these issues, aimed at assisting the workforce of their suppliers, they are making very real effort to do as much as possible. In some cases, it is clear that this work is beyond what could be considered as reasonably to have been expected of them: a number of proposals and actions go beyond that which were recommended in the review.”
Boohoo CEO John Lyttle said: “The Agenda for Change programme was designed to ensure that the changes we made to our business are sustainable and embedded into our culture as we look to the future.
“The dedication of our teams to delivering real change has meant we have been able to achieve the challenging targets we set ourselves and I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in this, both inside boohoo group and all of the external partners we have worked with, for their commitment.”
