Brand Case Study: Esprit
“The OAR is a very credible tool and supports our transparency goals, which are a huge topic in our company.”
Esprit improves supply chain data quality while mapping multiple tiers
Esprit has been working on mapping its supply chain for several years, beginning at a time when suppliers weren’t used to being asked to share this information with their clients. The brand has now mapped tiers 1 and 2 and some of tier 3 of its supply chain and shares all of this data on the OAR.
Esprit regularly updates its data on the OAR both for the benefit of civil society users of the tool, but also to improve the quality of its own database. The sustainability team shares the better quality address data it obtains from the OAR with its vendor management team.
Esprit is currently working on mapping more of tier 3 of its operations, which it plans to publish on the OAR when the process is complete.
Founded in 1968, Esprit has over 580 stores across 40 countries worldwide. Its network of suppliers spans 25 countries and includes hundreds of globally interlinked partners.
