ASOS and Anti-Slavery International have been working in partnership since 2017 to address modern slavery risks within ASOS’ diverse and complex global supply chain. The partnership has helped ASOS to improve internal modern slavery awareness and supplier due diligence, and enabled the business to take an industry-leading role in encouraging other businesses and policymakers to tackle modern slavery together.

In 2018, ASOS and Anti-Slavery International designed an innovative project to protect garment workers migrating from South Asia and Southern Africa by using smartphone technology and harnessing collaboration across unions, businesses and non-profits.

Alice Strevens, Head of Ethical Trade at ASOS, commented, “We are committed to the fight against modern slavery, but we know that cross-sector collaboration is essential to achieving our goals. Anti-Slavery International is the perfect partner in this. It brings years of real-world expertise tackling modern slavery and understands that change across a global business can be a complex journey. In the years working together we have taken positive action that is addressing the risk to the business and also making a genuine difference to people’s lives.”
