Adidas and Reebok have topped the annual Fashion Transparency Index, a ranking of the social and environmental transparency practices of global brands, for the third year in a row. In this latest edition, Patagonia also reached the top of the ranking. Each of these three brands scored 64 percent out of a possible 250 points. It was the first year that any brand scored above 60 percent for its transparency. The first edition of the Fashion Transparency Index was launched by Fashion Revolution, a lobby, in April 2016, when the Index assessed 40 of the largest global fashion brands. This year, the list examined 200 companies with a turnover of $500 million or above. The 2018 index ranked 150 companies, whereas the 2017 index looked at 98 companies.
