Microphone How development finance can help fashion brands and their suppliers

Sabine Schlorke, global manufacturing manager at the International Finance Corporation talks with Ian Welsh about how IFC works with big apparel sector brands in Bangladesh, Vietnam and other countries providing their suppliers with access to development finance via the PaCT (Partnership for Cleaner Textiles) programme.

She argues that the opportunities for resource efficiencies and improvements that benefit all in the value chain are significant, particularly when supplier factories can clearly see how access to finance can help.

IFC was a sponsor of Innovation Forum's recent sustainable apparel conference in Amsterdam.
