Odlo, the Swiss functional underwear specialist with Norwegian roots, was awarded “Leader” status by the Fair Wear Foundation for the fifth time in a row. The award is given to selected garment manufacturers for their efforts to continuously improve working conditions in their supply chains.

The Fair Wear Foundation stated that the status is the result of Odlo’s comprehensive due diligence systems and manufacturing program, which enables the brand to monitor 97 percent of its production sites – the highest result ever achieved. The brand’s production planning process includes a close examination of the indicators for compliance with social standards in the supplier assessment process.
