Transparency in the Supply Chain using the Open Apparel Registry
Katie Shaw, Chief Programme Officer, Open Apparel Registry

The Open Apparel Registry (OAR) exists to open up supply chain data for the benefit of all. It is a free, open data tool mapping garment facilities worldwide and allocating a unique ID to each. With its ability to automatically map supply chains while simultaneously cleaning data, it has become a go-to tool for brands collaboratively disclosing their supply chain data, rather than maintaining disparate spreadsheets and PDFs. Join us to learn how outdoor brands are benefitting from disclosing their supply chain data on the OAR, and how the EOG plans to use the OAR in its upcoming work.
