ASOS and Anti-Slavery International sign new partnership to 2025

Global fashion retailer ASOS is enhancing its human rights credentials by extending its association with Anti-Slavery International (A-SI). The pair have agreed a new three-year partnership, to 2025, to support the online retailer’s ‘Fashion with Integrity’ programme.

A-SI has acted as ASOS’s “critical friend” since 2017, providing advice, guidance and critique on ethical trade and tackling modern slavery. Under the new agreement, the body will advise ASOS on the development of the next phase of its modern slavery strategy. This will form a core of its forthcoming human rights strategy, due to be announced by the end of next year as part of its 2030 programme for Fashion with Integrity.

Leading up to 2025, a core priority within A-SI’s focus on responsible business is to bring about stronger legal frameworks to address the global systems that enable forced labour in supply chains.

Specifically, A-SI will work with ASOS to develop new solutions to address these challenges within its supply chain and advise on critical areas of risk.

Simon Platts, Responsible Sourcing Director, ASOS, said: “Our new, three-year partnership… builds on the solid foundation of collaboration… we’ve established in our work together. With dedicated resource and the opportunity to work together to drive change at scale, this new agreement takes things to the next level.”
