On Corporate Information Transparency Index (CITI), which is put together by the Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs (IPE) – a non-profit environmental research organization registered and based in Beijing (China), sportswear retailer Adidas has been ranked first in the textile sector for its supply chain responsibility. The list ranks corporations based on how they track and try to reduce pollution from factories in the supply chains in China.

The garment and textile sector has shown progress in this year’s list as against last year, compared to the other sectors covered in it. While Adidas ranks first on the basis of its CITI score in the garment and textile industry, it earned the second position in the overall list that includes all other industries operating in China.
