The 2021 Fashion Transparency Index gave Tom Ford the absolutely lowest score of 0% based on how much the company discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.
The American clothing retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.
Tom Ford doesn't have a code of conduct that applies to all his suppliers and subcontractors based on the regulations set by the International Labor Organization (ILO).
Tom Ford doesn't reveal if he ever assesses social or environmental compliance in his supply chain by conducting informal visits or audits.
Tom Ford doesn't use any exotic animal skin or fur. But he uses animal hair and angora, as well as leather, wool, silk, and down feathers to manufacture many of his clothing pieces.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
