VF Corp. has made single files available for download to trace the supply chain for certain products through its last four of its five tiers. Each extends from finished product assembly (tier one) back through material production, raw material processing and raw material conversion (tier four), with raw material cultivation and extraction (tier five) excluded. “Traceability,” explains Shanel Orton, the company’s director of materials and traceability, “is foundational to building an ethical and sustainable supply chain.” VF pledges to have published such maps for 100 of its brands’ products by December 2021. There are currently 46 maps online, all including both a geographical map and a “traceability disclosure list.” For details, see www.vfc.com/sustainability-and-responsibility/traceability-maps.
