- Photo: Pexels/Public domain The Fashion Transparency Index 2021, which tracks 250 of the world’s biggest brands and retailers in fashion, claims brands achieved an average transparency score of just 23% this year covering their sustainable practices, including carbon emissions, textile waste and fair pay for workers.
- However, the report does show the companies that achieved the top overall scores include OVS, H&M, The North Face and Calvin Klein, among others.
- The lowest performing brands include Roxy, Max Mara, Tory Burch, and Tom Ford.
- Meanwhile, almost all of the biggest fashion brands — some 99% of them — still don’t disclose the number of workers in their supply chain who are paid a living wage.
