The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act.

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, was enacted in January 2012. The law requires all apparel and footwear retailers as well as manufacturers with global sales of more than $100 million a year to make the disclosures on their companies’ Websites or send written disclosures at the request of customers if no Websites are available.

 

Aside from stating the efforts taken by the companies to eliminate slavery, the disclosures must contain educational information for consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that manage their supply chains responsibly.

 

Haute Elegance will only work with firms that are required by the Act that provide information that they comply with the Act. You can visit the websites of our suppliers for more information. Haute Elegance will monitor all suppliers every year.
