Fashion FWD

Transparency & Reporting

Providing full traceability and transparency in apparel and footwear supply chains is a complex matter due to their fragmented and global nature, with multiple actors involved in various tiers of the production process. We strengthen our knowledge of and influence on our supply chain through greater industry collaboration, and we continuously improve our systems for tracking and communicating knowledge and data over time. As part of this effort, our public list of tier 1 CMT (cut-make-trim) factories is updated six times a year.   

With our Fashion FWD strategy, we are committed to working towards greater transparency both in the value chain and at product level. This will be done through continuous communication and engagement with our stakeholders, as well as annual sustainability reporting.

BESTSELLER In Myanmar

BESTSELLER wishes to contribute to the ongoing positive developments related to social, labour, freedom of association, and environmental standards in the fashion and textile industry in Myanmar, while also avoiding financially contributing to the military. Consequently, BESTSELLER has imposed a ban on suppliers, factories and suppliers of materials owned by or affiliated with the military of Myanmar. Since 2020, BESTSELLER has increased our in-country due diligence to make sure that we are delivering on this policy.

In March 2022, we took part in a Clean Clothes Campaign and SOMO survey regarding sourcing in Myanmar after the February 2021 coup. Read our answers here:
