How to Search Open Supply Hub

Anyone is able to search and download data from Open Supply Hub for free. With an ever-growing database, we want to be sure you know how to quickly search to access the data you need.

Here are a few of the top ways to search Open Supply Hub:

Main Search Fields

Facility Name or OS ID:

  • What is it? Search by facility name or OS ID to find details about a particular facility.
  • When to use it? Looking to see which organizations are connected to a particular facility? Have the name or address for a particular facility and need the OS ID or vice versa? This is the search for you.

Data Contributor:

  • What is it? Search by the organization who contributed data to OS Hub. This could be a particular brand (like Target Corporation, Amazon, or Columbia Sportswear Company), a multi-stakeholder initiative (like Fair Factories Clearinghouse, Higg or ZDHC Foundation), a certification scheme (like the International Accord Foundation, Fair Trade USA or OEKO-TEX) or a factory/supplier group that has contributed their full facility list (like Hirdaramani Group or Delta Galil Industries Ltd).
  • When to use it? Are you looking to understand which facilities a brand is sourcing from, which facilities are certified by a particular certification scheme, or if a facility is listed on a platform like the Higg Index, for instance? Searching for that Contributor will give you a list of the facilities that they have contributed to the Open Supply Hub.


Quick Tip: Want to see which facilities certain Data Contributors share? Search and select the multiple Data Contributors. When you do so, a check box will appear that reads “Show only shared facilities.” Check that box and click “Find Facilities.”

Location:

To narrow in on facilities in a specific location, you can also search by Country and/or within a specific area/region that you draw on the map, using the [Draw Custom Area] tool (located on the map itself).

More Filters

You can select “More Search Filters” to access additional fields by which you can search:

  • Sector

  • Data Contributor Type

  • Parent Company

  • Facility Type

  • Processing Type

  • Product Type

  • Number of workers

As more data is contributed, more results will become available when searching these fields.

Combination Search

It’s important to know that you don’t have to run each of these searches one at a time, which brings us to:

Combination search:

  • What is it? Search by multiple criteria, like a sector and a specific country, facilities contributed by two or more brands, or a list of brands and a specific country.

  • When to use it? Looking to understand if multiple brands are sourcing from the same facilities? Want to see whether a specific brand or brands are sourcing from a particular country? Want to see how many facilities within a certain sector are in a particular region or industrial zone? Combination search allows you to combine any of the individual search criteria to dig even deeper into OS Hub data.
