Abstract

In an industry facing major unsustainability issues, companies struggle to implement sustainable practices, to ensure the sustainability of their supply chains. Sustainable fashion supply chains are a source of competitive advantage if applying sustainable manufacturing, eco-material production, green distribution, green retailing and ethical consumer practices. We will analyze the action of two companies, Inditex, and H&M, companies recognized for the efforts they undertake in order to ensure the sustainability of their supply chains, businesses and brands.
