Our 2017 Human Rights and Modern Slavery report provides an update on progress against our plans. It shares information about the issues and challenges we have faced over the course of 2016/17, and exceeds the requirements of the Transparency in Supply Chains clause of the Modern Slavery Act.
The report focuses on workers in our supply chains - both in our Goods for Resale (GFR) and Goods Not for Resale (GNFR). The global nature of our supply chains and the diversity of products and services that we use and sell, means that this is where the greatest complexity and risks lie. Our strategy and programmes address the most salient issues faced by workers and are delivered in those areas where we can have the greatest impact.
We are committed to providing greater transparency of manufacturing supply chains. In support of this commitment, in August 2017, John Lewis released the names and addresses of the factories supplying own brand clothing, accessories, footwear and homewares.
This transparency strengthens our human rights due diligence and better enables us to collaborate with civil society in identifying, assessing, and avoiding actual or potential adverse human rights impacts. The list will be reviewed and updated every six months to ensure it reflects the current supply base.
