The Open Apparel Registry exists to improve human rights and environmental conditions in and around factories and facilities by opening up supply chain data as a free, public good. When everyone working in global supply chains enjoys equal access to quality, open-licensed data, it leads to more sustainable and equitable outcomes for the most vulnerable communities affected by the apparel sector.


The OAR is a global team and Board with expertise in apparel supply chains, geospatial technology, data analysis, stakeholder engagement and more. Get to know us!
