Ethics and Social Responsibility in the Fashion Industry


Ethics and Social Responsibility in the Fashion Industry

Recorded On 12/05/2018


The fashion industry has come under scrutiny in recent times on the subject of corporate social responsibility. Global retailers strive to ensure their global corporate standards for labor, safety, sustainability and quality are uniformly adhered to throughout their supply chain. The difficulty of achieving this goal is frayed with hurdles as global brands struggle to operate across different national governance, cultural differences and language variations.

Our distinguished panel will discuss supply chain issues in the fashion industry, corporate social accountability, as well as the responsibility and ethical standards of in house or outsourced counsel advising the global brand client.
