NOTE: respective results should refer to a brands processing production stage(s). According to e.g. PUMA this would be Tier 3 (see below).

  • Good practice examples by brands in terms of specifying Tier stages in a supply / production chain:

- Fashion brand PUMA provided an exemplary presentation of its manufacturing activities by tier (see link, page 46) in its 2014 Annual Report, which goes as follow:

"- Tier 1: Manufacturing (e.g. Footwear, Apparel, Accessories),"
"- Tier 2: Outsourcing (e.g. Embroidery, Cutting, Printing),"
"- Tier 3: Processing (e.g. Dye Houses, Tanneries, Packaging),"
"- Tier 4: Raw materials (e.g. Cotton Fields, Cattle Farms, Rubber Plantations)."
