Mongabay: Forests in the furnace: Can fashion brands tackle illegal logging in their Cambodian supply chains?

July 2023

Mongabay reached out to 14 international brands that listed factories identified in a report as using illegal forest wood, but they either didn’t respond or evaded questions on illegal logging in their supply chains.

Much of the information that Mongabay used to track brands’ supply chains across Cambodia stems from each brand’s willingness to publish their supplier lists. Many do so through the Open Supply Hub, an open-access database of supply chains that aims to help make sense of the — sometimes deliberately — opaque networks that make up global trade.
