A Boohoo Group spokesperson tells Just Style it has signed the Pakistan Accord to help support and improve the safety and wellbeing of the workers in its supply chain.

Pakistan is understood to be a key growth area for Boohoo Group where much of its buying activity takes place.

The Boohoo spokesperson explains: “Pakistan continues to play an important role in our growth and the move builds on our existing social audit programmes across the region. We are already witnessing the positive impacts of our involvement with the Bangladesh Accord.”

Last year, Boohoo Group partnered with agricultural experts CottonConnect to build a transparent cotton supply chain out of Pakistan.

Through the programme, it actively works with nominated spinners and ginners to ensure cotton which is sourced through the programme is utilised throughout its supply chain and ultimately in garments for its consumers.

Boohoo is also looking to create new jobs locally through two freight stations in Pakistan that will conduct quality checks on goods destined for the UK and US.
