Production process & supply chain
To be sustainable and committed to the environment, a company has to be aware of every step of production, from the supply chain to market introduction. Moderated by Kerry Bannigan (Founder, Conscious Fashion Campaign) alongside Jill Dumain (CEO, Bluesign Technologies), reinforced the importance of transparency in achieving these goals.
According to Dumain, brands no longer have the choice to stray away from sustainability and transparency as it’s becoming the driving force behind customer behavior. “Once you see the faces of each individual it’s no longer just a country or a factory… it’s human beings and they are all a part of the supply chain” says Dumain.
