Adidas and H&M – ‘greenest’ supply chains in China

Apparel brands and retailers are going ‘green’ but Adidas and H&M have the ‘greenest’ supply chains among the 167 brands evaluated by the Corporate Information Transparency Index (CITI). As per the report, Levi’s has also made significant progress in improving the water footprint of their supplier’s production facilities.

Jointly developed by Chinese non-profit Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs (IPE) and the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC), CITI is a system for assessing companies’ sustainable sourcing practices which analyses companies’ supply chain environmental management in China based on Government-issued and public data on suppliers contracted by evaluated brands over the past year.

In addition to ranking companies on the basis of their performance in green supply chain, the 2015 CITI also identifies key areas of progress and critical gaps in the development of green supply chains in China. Many major companies have achieved ‘substantive’ progress in developing mechanisms for green procurement, the report stated. Despite the fact that CITI has made it difficult to earn points this year by raising the bar on its criteria, many brands including Adidas and Levi’s have managed to improve their overall score.

Another collaborative effort, the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), which aims to effectively minimize the negative impacts of textile supply chains, is working on to develop the third version of its Higg Index – a tool that provides standards for defining and measuring environmental and social performance.
