The list details around 1,100 factories following an extensive period of mapping and auditing starting in 2020.

It comes as the company also said that the 17 recommendations from the Independent Review were broken down into 34 deliverables as part of its Agenda for Change. So far, it has completed 28 of these. The remainder are “expected to be completed in the coming months”.

It also said that Sir Brian Leveson PC, who’s providing independent oversight of the Agenda for Change programme, has submitted his latest report to the board and acknowledged “the progress that has been made in relation to both the Independent Review and also the wider ethical programme upon which the group has embarked, embedding the Agenda for Change into business as usual”.

He added: “I continue to applaud the enthusiasm that all at Boohoo have demonstrated for the Agenda for Change Programme.”

The company announced too that it intends to sign the International Accord for Health and Safety, the legally binding agreement that replaces the Bangladesh Accord.
