ASOS has renewed its strategic partnership with Anti-Slavery International for another three years to develop the next phase of its modern slavery strategy.

The online fashion giant has worked with Anti-Slavery International since 2017 to guide and critique its own ethical trade strategy and advise on how to tackle modern slavery.

Anti-Slavery International will work with ASOS to develop new solutions to address challenges including ending child slavery, migration and trafficking, and modern slavery and climate change within its supply chain and advise on critical areas of risk.

The next phase of ASOS' modern slavery strategy will form a core part 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.

Simon Platts, Responsible Sourcing Director, ASOS said: “Our new, three-year partnership with Anti-Slavery International builds on the solid foundation of collaboration and ‘critical friendship’ that we’ve established in our work together since 2017. With dedicated resource and the opportunity to work together to drive change at scale, this new agreement takes things to the next level – and we’re so excited to be hitting the ground running in 2022.”

Jasmine O’Connor, CEO, Anti-Slavery International added: “Our 'critical friendship' with ASOS means that we can continue our work together to push for a fairer, more sustainable fashion industry that no longer relies on forced labour. We know that the fashion industry has a huge impact on people and planet, and we are looking forward to working with ASOS for much-needed industry wide change.”
