Supply chain transparency is improving

More brands and retailers publishes list of their suppliers,
increasing the transparency of their supply chain. As of November
2018, 172 brands across 68 companies or parent groups are
disclosing information about their production facilities, to
various degrees.

The trend is on the rise. Only 12.5 percent of brands disclosed
their supplier list in 2016, according to the Fashion Transparency
Index; two years later, 38 percent of the sampled global fashion
brands discloses information of their first-tier suppliers. In the
most detailed supplier lists, factory street addresses, types of
products produced, and number of workers are disclosed to the
general public.

However, tier-two supplier transparency is still to be improved.
Only 18% of brands are publishing information about their
processing facilities, where clothes undergo treatments such as
dyeing, printing, finishing and laundering.
