Ep 12: The Apparel Sector’s Opportunity to Rebuild more Resilient Supply Chains
In episode 12, our host Chris Peterson is joined by Anthesis Principal Consultants Elena Kocherovsky and Honor Cowen to discuss COVID-19 implications for supply chain relationships in the apparel industry. They draw connections between social and environmental sustainability and discuss opportunities to #buildbackbetter. Elena and Honor share insights related to these guiding questions: What is the significance of the economic, health and social impacts of COVID on the apparel industry? How are companies responding and are they pivoting to a longer term view or still reacting? How are climate change and social issues connected in the apparel industry? Is there any advice in order to build back better? What directions should apparel companies move into? At Anthesis, we recognize we are not an authority on the role of systematic racism in the apparel industry. We understand that many social issues in supply chains are perpetuated by racial inequity. We look to expertise of other who are leading in this important work to deepen our understanding of the connections across issues.
