Sweatshop Free Compliance Data
To inform compliance efforts related to the City's Code of Conduct for Apparel Contractors, the City collects factory location information from suppliers providing apparel/uniform products to the City (for apparel contracts at or above the formal dollar threshold).
The City is a member of the Sweatfree Purchasing Consortium, and as such, the City shares the collected factory information with the Consortium for purposes of compliance verification. The Consortium also uses the information provided to aid its efforts in increasing transparency and accountability in the apparel industry, and as such, will enter the information received from Consortium members into the Consortium's Sweatfree LinkUp online database.
