Question

Does the brand (company) have a published list of direct suppliers that have collectively contributed to more than 90% of the purchase volume?

Dutch version: Heeft het merk (bedrijf) een lijst van fabrieken gepubliceerd die samen meer dan 90% van het inkoopvolume vertegenwoordigen?

German version: Hat der Markenhersteller eine Liste der Direktanbieter veröffentlicht, die gemeinschaftlich mehr als 90 Prozent des Einkaufsvolumens beitragen?

One of the ultimate (and unusual) ways to boost transparency is to share the final assembly supplier list with other brands or even better, to make the list public online.

Ranking guidelines

You can reward a ‘Yes’ if the list is no more than 2 years old (e.g., a list with suppliers from 2016 qualifies up to and including 2018) and is likely to cover more than 90% of the brand’s total production (final assembly suppliers) of that reported year.

Note: For now it is not necessary that the brand publishes addresses of the suppliers, but this will be probably be added to the criteria in the nearby future.

  • [Brand] has published a list of direct suppliers that are likely to cover 90% of its total production, effective by [date].

?:
