'Chemical management is the new trend'

Apr '17
Chemical management has become the trend these days with brands and retailers realising the importance for a holistic and a proactive approach instead of just relying on product testing. It has never been easy for any firm to be a sustainable leader, but this is not the case with Leadership & Sustainability Consultancy that intends to make a difference.

"It has not always been easy to be a sustainable leader, but it is definitely worth it. The biggest challenge probably is to implement a holistic sustainability strategy that fits the company and creates business value," Karin Ekberg, Founder-CEO at Leadership & Sustainability Consultancy told Fibre2Fashion.

The consultancy firm has been raising awareness about crucial topics such as materiality or supply chain opacity within the textiles industry. "Not only do we raise awareness, we also offer solutions to continuously improve companies’ processes regarding sustainability, and we support our customers in every way possible in order to increase their competitiveness and shape a better future for all of us. Our vision of sustainability in the textiles and fashion sector is very simple. We want to achieve apparel, footwear, outdoor as well as textile products designed and manufactured with the highest level of responsibility and care for the environment and the health, safety and well-being of the people producing and purchasing the products. Therefore, it’s obvious that the industry must focus on best practices," she stated.

The firm offers consulting for strategy development and implementation, business ethics and controlling, sustainable manufacturing and supply chain management, communications, green operations and retail as well as a sustainable product portfolio."We provide tailor-made solutions for our customers that help to embed sustainability into the DNA of companies. Our solution is built on the core approach of the value chain and materiality (i.e. where there are impacts, risks and opportunities) along the value chain. We want to make a difference where the influence is the largest," added Ekberg. (RR)
