Fu­ture Fa­cing Dis­putes - En­for­cing the Eth­ic­al Charter
In re­cent years, the dam­aging en­vir­on­ment­al im­pact of our mod­ern way of liv­ing has be­come a hot top­ic on so­ci­ety’s agenda and there has been a not­able shift to­wards mak­ing choices based on their eth­ic­al con­sequences. If we take the fash­ion in­dustry as an ex­ample, when pur­chas­ing a new item of cloth­ing, con­sumers are now more in­ter­ested than ever be­fore in the sup­ply chain that led to the cre­ation of that item:Where did the raw ma­ter­i­als, for ex­ample the cot­ton, come from?Were the raw ma­ter­i­als grown us­ing pesti­cides?Did the farm­ers get a fair price for the raw ma­ter­i­als?Were the clothes man­u­fac­tured in a fact­ory pro­du­cing sig­ni­fic­ant emis­sions?Did the work­ers who made the cloth­ing re­ceive a good wage?

Green­ing your sup­ply chain
Many busi­nesses want to turn the im­pact of COV­ID-19 on their sup­ply chains in­to an op­por­tun­ity to im­prove ef­fi­ciency and in­crease mar­gins. They can do so by in­teg­rat­ing sus­tain­able en­vir­on­ment­al pro­cesses...
