Mango Publishes its Tier 3 Factory List as Part of Sustainability Strategy
Mango is "one of the first major fashion businesses in Spain" to release a list of its tier 3 factories. This comes after it released a list of its tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers.
It is part of the company's new sustainability plan, called '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.
Mango said in a news release that the list was made to meet the requirements of the Transparency Pledge Standard, a project that aims to make fashion supply chains more transparent.
In its publications, Mango said it would keep auditing its suppliers and ensuring that its workers had good places to work.
At the end of 2022, the brand said that it had 2,400 factories worldwide that were classified as tier 1, 2, or 3.
Turkey has 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 efforts, including several social action projects the company is planning in the next few 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 will develop ties with universities to increase the insertion of young people into the labour force.
