Over a third of firms in the fashion industry lack data on worker rights and safety in the supply chain, according to a survey.
A report, by cotton sustainability organisation US Cotton Trust Protocol, said 38% of fashion, textile and retail businesses in Europe and the US didn’t collect data on worker rights and workplace health and safety.
The survey found 41% tracked data on the amount of water and energy being used to produce raw materials sourced, while 45% collected data on greenhouse gas emissions from the production, manufacturing and distribution of products.
The report said while “brands understand that data can help them to measure progress towards sustainability targets, most do not collect a wide variety of data”.
