Sir Brian Leveson’s first report to the Boohoo board has praised the group’s actions so far to reform its supply chain but said there is still “a long way to go”.

The report said Boohoo “has enthusiastically started the journey and is travelling along the right road”.

Leveson detailed the progress Boohoo has made so far against its “Agenda for Change”, including the creation of a compliance committee, the appointment of two independent non-executive directors and the commencement of an audit of its Leicester suppliers.

The report confirmed Boohoo has dropped 64 of its suppliers in the last three months that did not comply with its ethical terms.
