The 2022 Fashion Transparency Index states that more major brands than ever, (48%) now publish a list of their first-tier manufacturers. While by no means complete or perfect, this is an illustration of the enormous strides that the apparel sector has taken toward supply chain transparency in recent years. With more and more sectors turning their attention toward conversations around transparency, many are asking: What worked for apparel? What were the ingredients that allowed a sector to change and advance so quickly? This webinar explored some of the key organizations, elements and initiatives that resulted in an unprecedented level of transparency in the apparel sector and how those can and have been replicated beyond apparel.
Panelists included representatives from across the apparel sector, including the Transparency Pledge, Fashion Revolution, the former Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textile (AGT/SER), Mapped in Bangladesh, and Open Supply Hub (formerly the Open Apparel Registry). The session was moderated by the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable.
