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.
