Beyond materials and waste, sustainability in fashion now needs to account for fair wages. Find out how by attending our free roundtable.
In the wake of the pandemic, sustainability strategies are undergoing greater scrutiny, and industry-wide, people are coming a distant second to planet. Fashion needs to take measurable action on living wages - but how?
Following the disruption caused by COVID, brand and supplier relationships must evolve to deliver true visibility - starting on the factory floor.
Brands have long accepted serious limitations on visibility into procurement and production. The last year has made the strongest case to date for breaking down those barriers - to brands' and suppliers' mutual benefit.
