Ethical Supply Chains

Leading retailers are committed to ethical sourcing.  For more than 20 years, our members have implemented some of the most rigorous due diligence measures to ferret out unethical practices and to support ethical manufacturing around the world. When we discover evidence of forced labor, our members act – resulting in stronger protections for workers and better and safer working conditions around the world.
RILA and industry partners are pushing U.S. leaders to engage collaboratively with allies and organizations to end forced labor practices around the globe. RILA is advocating for U.S. leaders to join forces with industry leaders, NGOs and other governments to identify constructive solutions to increase transparency so we protect the rights of workers and ensure the integrity of global supply chains.
