    • At the close of 2022, Mango had 2,400 factories throughout the world considered to be tier 1, 2 and 3, approximately 50% of which are in proximity.

    Mango, one of Europe’s leading fashion groups, is making progress in its commitment to the traceability and transparency of its value chain and has become the first major fashion company in Spain to publish the list of its tier 3 factories, related suppliers of fabrics and fittings, after also being the first to publish a list of its tier 1 and tier 2 factories last year, related to manufacture and finishing, and processes, respectively. 

    This move is part of the company’s commitment to people and its new sustainability strategy, called Sustainable Vision 2030, which aims to move towards the full traceability and transparency of its value chain, in order to continue with the process of auditing its suppliers and ensuring that appropriate working conditions are being fulfilled for the workers in the factories the company works with around the world.

    At the close of 2022, the company had 2,400 factories throughout the world considered to be tier 1, 2 and 3, approximately 50% of which (1,172) are in proximity. Turkey is the country with the largest number of factories working for Mango (663), followed by China (651) and India (214). Spain and Italy occupy fourth and fifth position, with 169 and 150 factories, respectively. 

    After these five countries, the countries with the largest number of factories working for Mango are Bangladesh (132), Morocco (87), Portugal (67), Vietnam (63) and Pakistan (51). In total, Mango produces its garments in 33 countries around the world. 

    The full list at the close of 2022, with data on the factory name, address, number of employees and type of product, has been drafted in accordance with the requirements of the Transparency Pledge Standard, an initiative launched by a coalition of nine employment and human rights organisations committed to transparency in clothing and footwear supply chains. The list may be consulted on the Mango corporate website by clicking here. 


    Committed to people
     
    The third pillar of Mango’s Sustainable Vision 2030 contains the company’s commitment to people. As well as moving towards the full traceability and transparency of its value chain, in the next few years Mango will promote social action projects and lasting and traceable collaborations with leading global organisations such as the Vicente Ferrer Foundation, Médicins Sans Frontières (MSF), the Spanish Red Cross, Educo and Save The Children, with whom it has collaborated for many years. The goal is to generate a positive impact on marginalised groups in countries throughout the world and to contribute to the social and economic development in the countries it operates in.


    In the coming years, the company will implement numerous training projects principally focused on providing children and women access to education in countries such as Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, so that these become a lever of change for societies, while in regions such as Europe and the United States, Mango will strengthen its ties with the some of the world's leading universities, in order to promote the insertion of young people in the job market.
