An impressive four years ahead of schedule, BESTSELLER has reached its empowerment goal for women in its supply chain. Dedication, time and resources have been key to the achievement.

To mark International Women’s Day 2021, BESTSELLER can reveal that more than 100,000 women have now been reached through its different empowerment programmes.

When launching Fashion FWD, BESTSELLER set the goal that ‘by 2025, we will support 100,000 women in tier 1 factories that BESTSELLER sources from to achieve workplace empowerment and improved life-skills’.

“Not only have we achieved a significant milestone – we also did it four years early,” says Andrei Vasiliev, BESTSELLER’s Social Impact Manager, highlighting that signing a five-year strategic partnership with BSR (the sustainability consultancy behind HERproject) in 2020 accelerated the efforts in the field – as well as the tireless hard work from BESTSELLER’s local responsible sourcing managers.

Andrei confirms that a new ambitious target is on the way.

“Until then we will of course continue our work with HERproject to empower even more women in our supply chain. We also focus on scaling up the impact from factory level to industry level to create learning opportunities for women throughout the fashion industry.”
