NEW YORK – A coalition of more than 20 human rights organisations have backed a letter to New York’s State Senator Alessandra Biaggi and Assembly member Anna R. Kelles with proposed amendments to strengthen New York’s recently announced Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act (the Fashion Act).

The proposed legislation would apply to all brands with an annual turnover of more than US$100 million operating in the state, and sets out to make fashion brands accountable for human rights and environmental issues in their global supply chains.

Signatory NGOs – including Human Rights Watch, Fashion Revolution and Remake – have however taken issue with the act’s framework which at present would rely on companies accurately reporting that they’re complying, rather than demonstrating it.
