FASHION REVOLUTION | FASHION TRANSPARENCY INDEX 2017

CITIZENS

We hope the Fashion Transparency Index inspires people to ask brands #whomademyclothes demanding greater transparency. At the moment none of us have enough information about where and how our clothes are made. We have the right to know that our money is not supporting exploitation, human rights abuses and environmental destruction. There is no way to hold brands and governments to account if we can’t see what is truly happening behind the scenes. This is why transparency is essential.

To encourage brands to do more, you can take action in two ways:

We hope that the Fashion Transparency Index inspires us to think differently about the clothes we buy and wear. We hope it inspires more people to scrutinise the brands they buy and to consider how clothes might have been made, where, by whom, under what conditions and at what true cost. We hope this research activates you to try to find out more about the production processes and people behind what you wear.

Encourage more public disclosure from brands. You can do this by using social media to ask brands #whomademyclothes and by supporting campaigns that call for brands to publish their supplier lists and supply chain information;  rite or call policymakers and W ask them to do two things: — To implement regulation ensuring brands are responsible for the impact they have on the lives of the people working in their supply chains, at home and abroad; — Require brands to report transparently about their social and environmental impacts across the entire value chain using a common framework.
