Boohoo publishes terms of reference for review of supply chain
Fast fashion retailer Boohoo has published the terms of reference for the independent review of its Leicester supply chain.
The review was announced earlier this month following allegations of low pay and unsafe conditions at its suppliers’ factories.
Led by Alison Levitt QC, the review will consider Boohoo’s obligations and relevant duties of care in relation to the factories’ workforces.
In a statement this morning, Boohoo said it will act decisively on the review’s findings and look to embed its recommendations into its strategic planning.
Boohoo said the review’s key objectives will be to investigate the allegations and determine whether they are well-founded. If they are, it will then consider the extent to which the company monitored its supply chain in Leicester and had knowledge of the allegations. It will also consider Boohoo’s compliance with relevant laws and make recommendations for the future.
Boohoo will be providing an update on the findings with its half year results when they are published on 30 September.
Brian Small, Boohoo deputy chairman, said: “We are pleased to share the terms of reference for the upcoming Independent Review into our Leicester supply chain. We believe this demonstrates how seriously we, as a board, are treating the recent allegations into our supply chain. The group is committed to delivering the highest standards of ethics, compliance and transparency.”
