Green fashion makes its mark

The new Serai and KPMG report reveals the challenges and opportunities in building a sustainable supply chain

Today’s thriving fashion industry is confronting a number of worldwide and domestic challenges, from poor working conditions in garment factories to the origins of raw materials and the environmental impact of the wider industry. Not only are these issues causing reputational risks and impacting the bottom line, consumer expectations and new industry regulations are also powerful forces driving demand for a more sustainable and environmentally-conscious supply chain.

Unfortunately, without visibility of the types of companies involved across the entire value chain, as well as insight into all the materials and components used, it’s impossible for consumers and regulators to ascertain the sustainability credentials of an item of clothing.

In this report, Serai and KPMG China join forces to explore the current state of the apparel supply chain, and identify potential opportunities for the industry to move forward.
