Marks & Spencer to stop sourcing from Myanmar

Marks & Spencer has announced that it will stop sourcing from Myanmar due to concerns over human rights violations.

The retailer has been working with the Ethical Trading Initiative to monitor the market in the country.

In a statement, M&S said: “The findings from the Myanmar Enhanced Due Diligence Sectoral Assessment demonstrate that it is impossible for our global sourcing principles to be upheld. We do not tolerate any human rights abuses within any part of our supply chain and are now working towards a responsible exit from Myanmar, in line with our responsible exit policy, which will see a full exit by March 2023.”

It added: “Over the next six months, we will continue to work closely with relevant stakeholders including the Ethical Trading Initiative throughout the consultation process, to ensure that our suppliers adhere to national laws and human rights are upheld. We are also looking at what additional measures we can put in place to mitigate the effects of the decision on the individual workers in Myanmar.”
