Fashion consumers can make better buying decisions if they can find out whether an item is ethically produced or not. Likewise, transparency along the fashion supply chain allows investors to know better where their money is going. Ultimately, clear investor information can help manufacturing workers in the global garment industry to know who they are working for and how to leverage for better working conditions.
Yet, supply chain and investor information are scarce, scattered and hard to access.
On August 23, 2018, Clean Clothes Campaign, in collaboration with Open Corporates and WikiRate, invite you to an Open Data Sprint to find out what kind of investor data is publicly available and how we can all start connecting the dots in supply chains.
We will bring together researchers, data analyst, and activists to map investor to company relations in the fashion industry. The focus of the sprint will be on some largest companies within the apparel industry, such as HANES, ASOS, GAP, and H&M.
After the research and review session, we invite you to stay with us for a get together. We look forward to your participation! Please support us by sharing this invitation with your colleagues and networks.
