LONDON – British multinational retailer, Marks & Spencer, has announced a formal commitment to cut all ties with suppliers implicated in Uyghur forced labour and to ban any sourcing from the Uyghur Region, from cotton to finished garments. The retailer has become one of the first businesses to sign the Coalition to End Uyghur Forced Labour’s Call to Action, which is endorsed by more than 300 human rights and civil society organisations.
While a number of brands and retailers, including major global fashion brands, have privately committed to the Coalition’s Call to Action pending public announcement, Marks & Spencer is the first top-tier global retailer to make its commitment public.
