KPMG, Textile Exchange report recommends implementation of SDGs

In the new 70+ page briefing, KPMG notes the $2.5 billion apparel industry is well positioned to implement SDGs within its supply chains to significantly reduce its global environmental impact. Since 2015, four in ten of the world’s largest companies are said to have referenced the Sustainable Development Goals within their corporate reporting, each identifying independent efforts to creating a more circular supply chain.

As with all SDGs, the report highlights the progress different industry organisations and manufacturers have made to improve the sustainability of their supply chains. Regarding gender equality, it cites Gap’s Personal Advancement and Career Enhancement (P.A.C.E) initiative – introduced to empower women working across the sector working in Asia – as an example of progress.
