Company Ranking21 out of
Kering SA (Kering), whose brands include Alexander McQueen and Gucci, is the second-largest luxury goods company globally. It ranks 21st out of 37 companies and discloses about the same amount of information on its forced labor policies and practices as its peers. As the company has taken only limited steps to improve since 2018 (namely introducing training for leather suppliers, disclosing sourcing locations throughout four tiers of its supply chains, and disclosing a summary of audit findings), its score has decreased by four points. This may also be due to a strengthened methodology. It scores higher than average on the themes of Commitment & Governance, Traceability & Risk Assessment, Worker Voice, and Monitoring and lower than average on the remaining themes. Kering states that it does not use cotton produced in Xinjiang, but it does not disclose the steps it has taken to address the risks of alleged Uyghur forced labor across its supply chain tiers. Kering is encouraged to improve its performance and disclosure on the themes of Recruitment, Worker Voice, and Remedy.
