Fashion supply chains, on the ground in Bangladesh

There is clear momentum building to support landscape approaches that move beyond single commodity certification and promote regenerative agricultural practices.

Market players are starting to invest in these mechanisms, which will be crucial for them to reach scale and move them into the mainstream. Anita Chester, Litul Baruah and Varun Joseph in our Fashion Materials team plan to spend more time and resource here, moving Laudes Foundation’s work from demonstration projects to driving finance and investment into those landscapes where the fashion sector has a huge role and opportunity to step up.

Communities are the true innovators on climate change. We must ensure their voices are amplified and their solutions championed. And thanks to the incredible efforts of our partners, the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), and Action for Social Advancement (ASA), Bhopal, real change is indeed being delivered.
