(Nike), the world's third-largest apparel company and the largest athletic retailer, ranks ninth out of 43 companies, disclosing more information on its forced labor policies and practices than its peers across all themes. Compared to 2016, the company improved its rank from tenth to ninth. Since 2016, the company has improved its performance and disclosure by updating the forced labor provisions of its supplier standards, providing translations of the standards, and communicating the updates to its first- and second-tier suppliers. The company further disclosed its second-tier supplier list, audited some second-tier suppliers, instituted a process to assess forced labor risks, and engaged with local stakeholders in Turkey and Malaysia on migrant workers and with the Mexican government on freedom of association. Additional steps the company could take to address forced labor risks in its supply chains include strengthening its disclosure and practices on the themes of Traceability & Risk Assessment, Recruitment, and Worker Voice.
