It's incumbent upon businesses today to build the sustainable supply chains that consumers and investors demand. But they don't just want to hear about your sustainability initiatives; they require proof that you walk your talk. To build trust and your reputation, you need to be able to supply that proof, and for that you need end-to-end supply chain visibility. Transparency must exist everywhere, from your vendors and the raw materials they use to how your goods are shipped. You must be able to demonstrate that your company promotes human rights, fair labor practices, and environmental stewardship, all while complying with ever-changing regulations.
There are different paths to sustainability, but it’s hard to know where to get started to make sustainability not only a part of your company but your culture. Sustainability initiatives infuse your supply chain with agility, efficiency, and resiliency. Here’s how to get started.
Sourcing sustainability-focused vendors in a time of supply chain disruptions is risky. You need real-time visibility into vendor actions to form collaborative relationships. A view into your entire vendor ecosystem boosts discovery, evaluation, and communication. Working together, you can turn challenges into opportunities.
Studies suggest supply chain executives believe a more sustainable supply chain will help them cut costs. Yet, hesitancy over the cost of the technology remains a barrier. That’s shortsighted; the focus should not just be on cost but on how the overall changes will improve your bottom line.
Do you really know what’s going on throughout your apparel supply chain? Sustainability requires total compliance and chain-of-custody visibility to weave corporate social responsibility into your brand. It’s time to embrace the latest fashion - the digital transformation of your apparel supply chain.
If you want your suppliers to implement effective corrective actions, you need to let them own, design and champion them. To get the best results, be transparent about your expectations and insist your vendors offer equal insight into their corrective actions. Cooperation and collaboration lead to continuous improvement.
