A report commissioned by ETI has investigated how business models are at the forefront of creating pressures on labour standards in global supply chains. The Business Schools of King’s College London and the University of Warwick find that aggressive price competition and a reliance on supplier sourcing models drive deteriorating standards. Meanwhile, the rise of fast and super-fast fashion compounds problems. As do ‘no-frills discounters’ in food retail. Against this backdrop, the report recommends changes across the business spectrum – at shareholder, consumer, competition and production levels.
