LONDON - A new study of measures taken by large businesses in key sectors - including apparel - to safeguard human rights during the pandemic has found that most are taking little to no action.

The World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA) studied the policies and actions of 229 companies and found that only a quarter were able to prove they were helping suppliers mitigate the financial and social impacts of COVID-19.

Of the 53 apparel brands and retailers approached for the survey, only 28 responded including Adidas, Burberry, Fast Retailing, H&M, Hugo Boss, Kering, Marks and Spencer, Next, Nike, Prada, PVH, Ralph Lauren, Target, VF Corp and Walmart.
