As part of its new sustainability strategy, Mango has published a list of tier 3 factories.
Following the release of its tier 1 and 2 suppliers, fashion retailer Mango has become "one of the first major fashion companies in Spain" to publish its tier 3 factory list.
It is part of the company's new sustainability strategy, dubbed 'Sustainable Vision 2030,' which aims to highlight the traceability and transparency of its value chain.
The tier 3 list includes the brand's fabric and fitting suppliers, revealing their names, addresses, number of employees, and the type of product they provide.
The list was compiled in accordance with the requirements of the Transparency Pledge Standard, an initiative aimed at increasing transparency in fashion supply chains, according to a press release from Mango.
Mango stated in the publications that it will continue the process of auditing its suppliers and ensuring that appropriate working conditions are met for its employees.
Turkey, China, and India are at the forefront.
At the end of 2022, the brand reported that it had 2,400 factories worldwide that were classified as tier 1, 2, or 3.
Turkey had the most factories, with 663, followed by China (651), India (214), Spain (169), and Italy (150).
The move is linked to the third pillar of Mango's strategy, which is centred on traceability, and it joins other similar value chain-based initiatives, including a number of social action projects that the company is planning in the coming years.
These include "traceable" collaborations with organisations such as the Spanish Red Cross and Save the Children, as well as training projects aimed at improving access to education for children and women in countries such as India and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, in Europe, Mango announced that it would strengthen ties with universities in order to increase the insertion of young people into the labour force.
