Lululemon Athletica Inc. (Lululemon), one of the largest sportswear companies in the world, ranks 1st out of 65 companies. Compared to 2021, the company maintained its rank. This is because the company began disclosing data on migrant workers in its supply chains, new training for second-tier suppliers in Taiwan on how to cascade its policies addressing forced labour to their subcontractors, and further examples of remedy outcomes for supply chain workers, including the remediation of recruitment-related fees at second-tier subcontractors. Notably, the company is the highest-scoring company on the themes of Commitment & Governance and Recruitment. However, with a score of 63/100, the company continues to have substantial scope for improvement on its prevention and management of forced labour risks.
KnowTheChain identified one allegation in the company’s supply chains, related to the use of alleged Uyghur forced labour. However, the company does not disclose the steps it has taken to address the risks of alleged Uyghur forced labour across raw materials and supply chain tiers.
The company has an opportunity to improve its performance and disclosure on the themes of Traceability & Risk Assessment, Purchasing Practices, and Worker Voice.
