SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is delighted to announce a complimentary webinar, ‘Advancing fashion accountability: the SGS Digital Traceability Solution.’ This event takes place on December 13.
Ensuring transparency in the fashion industry is challenging for manufacturers and retailers who often have multiple suppliers, and deal with many different raw materials. With increasing pressure from consumers and stakeholders to provide evidence of responsible production processes and textiles/fabrics, SGS has developed an innovative service to enable businesses to manage their supply chains effectively.
Expert presenter Frank Kempe explores the background of the issue of traceability for softlines and introduces the SGS Digital Traceability Solution. This provides a comprehensive range of services, from traceability competence development to document desktop review and traceability onsite verification. A digital platform, SGSmart-Source, has been developed to support the service.
When businesses have oversight of potentially polluting supply chain operations that the SGS Digital Traceability Solution can provide, it is possible for them to take measures which will ensure not only verifiable raw materials, but also commercial advantage, in the form of brand recognition and increased market competitiveness.
This webinar will be of interest to brands, retailers and manufacturers in the footwear and apparel industries.
