The 2017 Ethical Fashion Report is the result of 12 months of world-leading research. This is the fourth report of its kind, with the first being published in 2013, in the wake of the fashion industry’s most tragic disaster — the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh.
Baptist World Aid Australia‘s 2017 Ethical Fashion Report grades 106 apparel companies (330 brands) on the systems they have in place to mitigate the risk of slavery and exploitation in their supply chains. It empowers every day shoppers to make more ethical purchasing decisions.
This report marks a significant expansion of the work of previous reports adding 50 per cent more companies, updating the research and adopting a new and enhanced rating tool. 78 per cent of the companies assessed directly engaged in the research process — up from 54 per cent in the first report.
