This year the world has marked eight years since the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse on April 24th, 2013. But has there been any noticeable improvements in the working conditions in the garment factories?

The global pandemic has hit the fashion industry particularly hard. But, it is the most vulnerable who have been hit the hardest. With all the great work that numerous labor unions, NGOs and impact entrepreneurs have been doing, the global fashion industry seems unlikely to overcome its sustainability challenge via self-regulation and citizen-policing alone.

In Germany, the Supply Chain Law, or the so-called “Lieferkettengesetz” is about to be defined and put into action. What does the Lieferkettengesetz actually mean for the fashion industry? Whom will it affect directly and indirectly? These and many other questions we addressed in our Fashion Revolution – Supply Chain Edition event, which was keynoted by Anosha Wahidi, Head of Division and Commissary for Sustainability Standards at German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. To recap the best moments and the key messages, check out our event video!

 

The discussion was further contributed by senior industry experts such as Abil Bin Amin and Hannah Bruce from Ethical Trading Initiative, who provided first-hand insights from Bangladesh on how the pandemic is influencing the garment factories. Vivek Ramachandran, CEO of Serai, a Hong Kong-based B2B platform for textile suppliers, shared his views on how technology can help increase transparency and accountability of the participating actors.

The event ended with a panel discussion which was joined by supply chain and sustainability experts Prof. Dr. Stefan Spinler, Director of Institute for Logistics Management, at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management and Kristin Heckmann, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Hessnatur.
