It also states that it requires suppliers to ensure that subcontractors adhere to its supplier code and that it monitors subcontractors. It does not disclose the steps it has taken to address the risks of alleged Uyghur forced labor across its supply chain tiers. LVMH is encouraged to improve on the themes of Purchasing Practices, Recruitment, and Worker Voice.
