Towards a sustainable fashion retail supply chain in Europe:Organisation and performance
Sustainability issues are particularly sensitive to the fashion supply chain, given current fierce competition, intensive resource use, and the exposure of penurious labour conditions in some regions. In this paper we discuss how the sustainability movement is impacting the fashion retail supply chain organization and its performance. We carried out a study with stakeholders of the fashion industry and we report on their views. We elaborate on the challenges and conflicts of the different dimensions of sustainability, and we discuss how to leverage both the internal and external organisations in the European supply chain.
