The index includes only big brands and those that volunteered to be included. They sent questionnaires to the brands and received only 47% response rate (this is not surprising). No brands scored above 50% on their rating scale – the best brands (which is not saying much) were: Adidas, Reebok, Marks & Spencer, H&M, Puma, Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy.
NOTE: Like some of the review on this blog – this is all voluntarily provided information and not independently verified. And the analysis is similar to what I have found – difficult to find information and really much of what you can find is rather vague.
The report calls on people to encourage companies to disclose more and to write or call policy makers to improve regulations and require brands to report transparently.
