Pressure is upon the fashion industry to address the climate impact of their supply chains.

Studies show that the supply chain is a dominant source of emissions in fashion retail. While there are many existing platforms spanning supply chains to gather carbon data, it is important that suppliers build carbon management capabilities to improve the quality of data submitted.
