Company Ranking37 out of
Shenzhou International Group Holdings Ltd. (Shenzhou International), a leading Chinese clothing manufacturer and Nike’s largest apparel supplier, ranks last out of 37 companies and discloses significantly less information on its forced labor policies and practices than its peers. Shenzhou International maintained its 2018 score despite a strengthened methodology that makes it harder to achieve the same score. This is because the company states that it began requiring suppliers to comply with a code of conduct that addresses forced labor, child labor, and discrimination (though the code itself is not publicly disclosed), and that it assesses supplier performance on the implementation of this code to determine future procurement. The company does not disclose the steps it has taken to address the risks of alleged Uyghur forced labor across its supply chain tiers. It is encouraged to improve its performance and disclosure on the themes of Commitment & Governance, Traceability & Risk Assessment, and Recruitment.
