The Ethical Fashion Report is the 6th from Baptist World Aid, seeking to shed light on what the industry and individual companies are doing to address forced labour, child labour and exploitation.

Each report – since the launch of the first in 2013 – has tracked the progress within the industry. The change since 2013 has been significant. This edition assesses 130 fashion companies, awarding each a grade from A to F based on the strength of their labour rights management systems to mitigate the risk of exploitation in their supply chain.

The grades awarded are a measure of the efforts undertaken by each company to mitigate the risks of forced labour, child labour and worker exploitation in their supply chains, as well as protect the environment from the harmful impacts of the fashion industry.

Higher grades are given to companies with ethical sourcing systems that, if implemented well, should reduce the extent of worker exploitation and environmental harm.
