The Rana Plaza tragedy that claimed 1100 lives four years ago, in a clothing factory in Bangladesh, has spurred on a global change in the garment industry. Many major brands have started to disclose their supply chain information to show their accountability in their commitment to ethical manufacturing practices.
Canadian Tire, however, lags sorely behind. It refuses to disclose any factory or supply chain information. This hands-off approach is another Rana Plaza disaster waiting to happen.
Canadian Tire must become more involved in knowing and disclosing its garment suppliers for its Canadian Tire, Sport Chek and Mark's stores.
Sign today to tell Canadian Tire to disclose supply chain information.
When garment companies disclose factory information they are more accountable for the conditions in these factories. Disclosure prevents under-age working, forced labour conditions and unsafe factories.
Canadian Tire wants to position itself as a trusted Canadian brand. However, in order to maintain that trust, it must transparent about its supply chains.
With enough pressure, from concerned citizens like you, Canadian Tire will see that Canadians want ethical, accountable corporate practices.
