Like every other corporation, the Swedish fashion multinational Hennes & Mauritz has the responsibility to make sure that human rights are respected throughout its supply chain. The efforts that are made to respect human rights should also be showcased. This is set out in the United Nations Guiding Principles, the most comprehensive template on Business and Human Rights to date. The publication of H&M’s statement that the company started contracting with manufacturers in Hlaing That Yar Township (Myanmar) was fully in line with these principles. A recent statement from H&M that was published in the Guardian has however shown a very different side of the retailer. This document was issued in response to the claims that were made in the new book Modeslavar by Tobias Andersson Åkerblom and Moa Kärnstrand.
