The Environmental Audit Committee has written to Boohoo asking for its senior executives’ bonuses be linked to the progress made on its commitment to clean up its supply chain.

Since the fast-fashion etailer was accused of modern slavery in its Leicester factories last July, it has been on a mission to overhaul and audit its suppliers to ensure good and fair working conditions.

The Environmental Audit Committee has asked for an update on Boohoo’s commitments to its environmental and social responsibilities, as laid out before the committee in December.

The letter says the committee was disappointed by founder and executive chair Mahmud Kamani’s appearance at the December meeting, claiming he was unable to give “sufficient responses” to a number of questions.

The committee is particularly seeking updates on Boohoo’s measures to ensure minimum wage compliance within its supply chain and to see the list of 64 suppliers it has reportedly cut ties with for failing to comply with Boohoo’s new code of conduct, as well as whether the bonus incentive for senior executives has been put in place.

EAC chair Philip Dunne said: “Boohoo’s rapid growth has taken the UK garment industry by storm. It has been linked to poor pay and conditions in UK garment factories. But to its credit, it has pledged to clean up its act.

“We have written to Mr Kamani to seek updates on a range of issues, including on supply chain transparency. We are asking Boohoo to put its money where its mouth is and link the multimillion-pound bonuses it has lined up for its bosses to the achievement of its ethical and environmental pledges.”
