Social reports are an integral part of FWF’s requirements on brand transparency. They are also important tools to communicate a brand’s effort towards improving working conditions. They give FWF member brands the opportunity to show consumers, customers and other stakeholders their achievements under FWF membership and other areas of Corporate Social Responsibility, strengthening accountability towards consumers and stakeholders.
FWF provides a template with the minimum information necessary for the social report, and member brands are free to include more information. FWF then collects and publishes the report, but does not verify its content upon publication. The quality of the social report is checked and reported on as part of the annual Brand Performance Check for each brand.Download
