The fashion industry has a high environmental impact in terms of its carbon, water and waste footprint, and is therefore facing increased pressure from multiple stakeholders to balance environmental, social and economic needs - the triple bottom line. Managing Sustainability in the Fashion Supply Chain presents examples of sustainability initiatives used in companies such as M&S and H&M, and looks at the major challenges which are often encountered when trying to incorporate sustainability measures into a company strategy.

Aimed at students on manufacturing, retail, supply chain management and logistics courses, this case study explores sustainable initiatives. Managing Sustainability in the Fashion Supply Chain offers readers insights into how to meet the triple bottom line and become more sustainable.
