Following the disclosure of its tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers, fashion retailer Mango has become “one of the first big fashion corporations in Spain” to publish its tier 3 factory list.
It is a component of the business’s new sustainability strategy, “Sustainable Vision 2030,” which aims to highlight the traceability and transparency of its value chain.
The brand’s fabric and fitting suppliers are listed on the tier 3 list, along with their names, addresses, employee counts, and the kinds of goods they provide.
The Transparency Pledge Standard, a project aimed at increasing transparency in fashion supply chains, was followed in compiling the list, according to a press release from Mango.
Mango stated through the newspapers that it will continue.
At the end of 2022, the brand reported it had 2,400 factories globally considered to be either tier 1, 2 or 3.
Turkey was home to the largest number of factories, with 663, followed by China at 651, India at 214, Spain at 169 and Italy with 150.
The action fits in with other comparable value chain-based efforts, including a number of social action projects the firm is planning in the next years, and is connected to the third pillar of Mango’s strategy, which is focused on traceability.
These include “traceable” partnerships with organizations like the Spanish Red Cross and Save The Children as well as training initiatives that will concentrate on giving girls and children in nations like India and Pakistan access to education.
In the meantime, Mango said it would further be strengthening ties with universities to boost the insertion of young people into the job market in Europe.
