Garment supplier Echo Sourcing has been building its business in Bangladesh since 2005 and is confident of continued growth in a country that has been rocked by a number of safety issues. The company, however, is keen to broaden its horizons and is eyeing potential new markets such as Ethiopia. Mark Bannister, head of sustainability and projects, talks to just-style.
The latest sustainability report released earlier this month by Swedish apparel retailer H&M Hennes & Mauritz highlights the group's achievements over the last year. Helena Helmersson, head of sustainability for H&M, spoke with just-style about the company's major milestones, including closed loop clothing, collaboration, and the group's African sourcing plans.
The most-read stories on just-style last week included the possible sale of Adidas's Reebok brand, figures that suggest UK textile sector wages and productivity are the lowest of all the country's manufacturing industries, and reports that structural issues may have been to blame for the collapse of a Cambodian garment factory.
An initial risk inspection on a Cambodia clothing factory which collapsed earlier this week injuring eight people suggests structural issues may have been to blame.
At least eight workers at a clothing factory in Cambodia's Takeo province have been injured after the floor collapsed yesterday (21 October).
Leading international brands including H&M, Eddie Bauer, The North Face and Marmot have committed to using responsibly sourced and traceable down in their products.
Several events are set to converge on the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka in December, including the Second International Trade Expo for Building and Fire Safety.
Experts on China's textile and apparel industry say that international brands must take increasing care to ensure their sourcing is environmentally and socially responsible, ahead of an anticipated tightening of government restrictions.
In an exclusive interview published on just-style last week, Andrew Lo, CEO of Hong Kong based manufacturing giant Crystal Group, talks about the challenges of building the business for long-term growth, and ensuring that the company has a strong local supply chain in place to deliver on its goals.
