More collaboration is the need of the hour: Han Bekke

19
Jun '20
Although there is a remarkable move from social compliance issues to environmental issues, companies in the textiles and clothing supply chain more than ever have to take their responsibility in making the sector more sustainable, according to Han Bekke, president of the International Apparel Federation (IAF).

Since the textiles industry is seen as one of the most polluting industries, pressure is coming from governments, parliaments, NGOs and consumers to act on environmental issues, Bekke writes in an article in the hard bound fifth edition of the Sustainability Compendium - ‘Going Circular’ brought out by Fibre2Fashion.

In the article 'There's work to be done', he says while discussing the role of IAF, “IAF's mission is to unite the entire industry to create stronger, smarter and more sustainable supply chains. Dealing with supply chains, asymmetrical work is not effective. All parts of the chain must collaborate: buyers, clothing manufacturers and textile suppliers. Focusing only on sustainability is also asymmetrical. Improved sustainability depends on improvements in the business operation."
