TRANSPARENCY: OPPORTUNITIES OBSTACLES & OUTLOOK

About This Event

The apparel industry is under mounting pressure to increase the level of transparency into its products and processes. Led by savvy consumers and fueled by a handful of vocal competitors in the space, it’s becoming expected for fashion firms to be able to verify what’s happening in their supply chains.

Join us for a 45-minute webinar about how brands and retailers are adapting to answer the call. Plus, we’ll share a first look at the results from Sourcing Journal’s exclusive research report conducted on behalf of Cotton Incorporated, which provides insights into how far the industry has come and how far it has to go.

In this webinar we will:

  • Discuss the benefits of operating a transparent supply chain
  • Present what consumers really want to know about their products
  • Analyze the challenges holding the apparel industry back
  • Reveal where your peers are on the road to transparency

  • Garry Bell, vice president, corporate marketing and communications, Gildan Activewear
  • Natalie Grillon, project director, Open Apparel Registry
  • Melissa, Bastos, director of market research, Cotton Incorporated
  • Edward Hertzman, president, Sourcing Journal Media (moderator)
