New legislation which would hold all major fashion brands accountable for human rights and environmental issues in their global supply chains is being proposed for the US state of New York.
The Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act, which would apply to all brands with an annual turnover of more than US$100 million operating in the state, would be the first of its kind in the US.
The proposed bill would apply only to apparel and footwear brands and retailers which would be required to "identify, prevent, mitigate and account for how they address" the adverse impacts of their global production.
