LONDON – Online retailer ASOS has released its latest Modern Slavery Statement, evaluating its work between April 2018 – March 2019 and detailing the firm’s commitments towards modern slavery risk mitigation in its supply chain by 2020. 

One of the key challenges faced by ASOS in achieving its 2020 goals and eradicating modern slavery from its supply chain is that much of its product portfolio – equating to 52 per cent of sales – is manufactured for third-party brands, meaning that it must engage directly with these organisations in order to seek alignment in policies and practices. 

The company’s latest findings show that only 42 per cent of these brands currently meet its requirements, which include publishing a Modern Slavery Statement and mapping supply chains to tier one.
