Beyond ‘social compliance as PR exercise’ for the apparel sector
29 Sep 21
Avedis Seferian and Peter Stanbury
Avedis Seferian, CEO of global social compliance non-profit WRAP, talks with Peter Stanbury, co-author of Innovation Forum’s new Sustainable Apparel Barometer 2021, about the report’s key themes. Among their discussion points: the pros and cons of second versus third party auditing; the explosion in the number of audit standards and the subsequent challenges of compliance for factories; the on-going need to accept that there is no one-size-fits all solution; and, why some brands still need to think about actually achieving social compliance rather than being seen to do it.
WRAP was a research partner for the Sustainable Apparel Barometer.
