Fashion retailer Mango has published its list of Tier 3 factories as “one of the first major fashion companies in Spain”, having already announced its Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers in October 2020.

    The publication is part of the company’s new sustainability strategy “Sustainable Vision 2030”, with which it aims to improve the traceability and transparency of its value chain.

    The Tier 3 list includes the brand’s fabric and haberdashery suppliers and publishes their names, addresses, number of employees and the types of products they supply.

    According to a Mango press release, the list was created in accordance with the requirements of the Transparency Pledge Standard, an initiative to promote transparency in the fashion industry supply chain.

    With the release, Mango wants to continue the process of auditing its suppliers and ensuring that decent working conditions are guaranteed for workers.

    Turkey, China and India lead

    By the end of 2022, the brand said it had 2,400 factories worldwide, which can be assigned to either Tier 1, 2 or 3.

    Turkey has the most factories with 663, followed by China with 651, India with 214, Spain with 169 and Italy with 150.

    The move is related to the third pillar of Mango’s sustainability strategy, which focuses on traceability. It joins other similar value chain-based initiatives, including a number of social action projects the company is planning for the next few years.

    These include “traceable” collaborations with organizations like the Spanish Red Cross and Save The Children, as well as education projects designed to give children and women in countries like India and Pakistan access to education.

    In Europe, Mango will continue to develop its relationships with universities to promote the integration of young people into the labor market.
