Levi Strauss & Co provides list of suppliers for transparency in supply chain

Oct '05
Levi Strauss & Co published a list of all active owned-and-operated and contract factories producing Levi's, Dockers and Levi Strauss Signature branded products.

'They believe that greater transparency within the supply chain will provide additional momentum for their efforts to improve working conditions in apparel factories worldwide,' said David Love, senior Vice President, Global Sourcing.

'Their hope is that this level of transparency will become standard across the apparel sector, fostering greater collaboration among brands in shared factories. They believe that when brands are working together on issues of compliance with codes of conduct, factory monitoring will ultimately be more effective and less burdensome for suppliers, allowing them to focus time and resources on making improvements that benefit workers.'

In 1991, LS&CO was the first multinational company to enact a global code of conduct for suppliers. Codes of conduct are now an apparel sector norm and have significantly contributed to improved conditions for workers and the decline in issues such as child and forced labor.

'By sharing their list of suppliers publicly, they recognize the efforts of those suppliers who are meeting their code of conduct and improving factory working conditions,' said Michael Kobori, Vice President, Global Code of Conduct at LS&CO. 'They also establish a sense of accountability that they hope will encourage factories to maintain positive working conditions and begin to foster greater factory ownership of the compliance process.'
