The textile industry has complex supply chains with a great need for action. Poor labour conditions, chemical contamination of soil and water from dyeing effluents and workers’ exposure to chemicals are a few of the many risks. These risks pose a clear threat to the brand reputation, as past scandals such as the Rana Plaza catastrophe in Bangladesh have shown.
First laws for the textile sector, such as the UK Modern Slavery Act and the French Vigilance Law, have made it mandatory for companies to disclose risks related to human rights violations and environmental impacts in their supply chains. Considering the growing trend of legally anchoring the responsibility of companies, it is crucial for companies to take immediate action.
