The Ethical Fashion Report 2021 is here to inform us about how companies are going with caring for people and the planet over profits.
Released annually by Baptist World Aid, the report assesses about 100 companies representing 400 brands.
Companies are judged across a broad range of categories, from supply chains to liveable wages and action on modern slavery. A grading between A and F is awarded for their ethical efforts and actions.
Australian companies such as Myer and RM Williams scored D ratings. The company behind surf brands Quiksilver and Billabong scored F.
At the other end, Australian designer Outland Denim was one of four companies which scored an A+ rating.
With Baptist World Aid estimating that 50 million people work in the fashion industry around the world, keeping companies accountable is a big deal.
