Supply chain transparency helps us to understand and identify any risks throughout our supply chain. Our Manufacturing Map shows the suppliers we work with and offers background information for each of them. It gives insight into where our products were made, as well as the number of workers at each factory site, the gender balance, and finally any sustainability initiatives or certifications that are in place. We included all direct suppliers that we have been working with for at least two years.
Around 95% of our production volume (this differs per season) of all G Star suppliers are included in the Manufacturing Map. In March 2017 we also signed the Supply Chain Transparency Pledge to publish more information that will enable workers and consumers to find out where their products are made. We published the extra information on our direct suppliers and processing facilities in our G Star Manufacturing list.
Both the Manufacturing Map and the Manufacturing List are updated every six months.
