Business & Human Rights Resource Centre - Covid Tracker

The COVID-19 Apparel Tracker monitors global brands’ actions in response to the pandemic, and the impact on workers in their supply chains. It also tracks demands from the labour movement, and recommendations on how to build back better. In addition to the other data collected, the data on purchasing practices was collected on ordinary payment terms and changes to payment terms in response to the pandemic.
