The 1990s was about the march towards manufacturing quality as the textile industry worldwide raced to adopt lean manufacturing and ISO driven quality practices. The 2000s were about ensuring ethical sourcing and labor practices. The coming decade is going to be about sustainability and optimally using natural resources to generate value in the textile supply chain.
In this report we talk about this new dimension on the cusp of being rolled out throughout the supply chain: Environmental Sustainability. Progressive brands and retailers have been exploring sustainability initiatives since the middle half of the last decade: testing initiatives first internally and now considering roll-out through their global supply chains. This report attempts to paint a picture of what the next few years are going to look like and inform industry practicioners on the shift that is afoot.
