CBS AID invited CBS Sustainability to be part of a panel debate focusing on the garmet industry on Monday, 9th of March.

Doing business in a developing country is significantly different from operations in the West, as it poses greater challenges in the form of poor infrastructure, an impoverished population, a less educated workforce, different workforce norms etc. The garment industry often benefits from production sites in developing countries and the industry is valued in the trillions of USD and has steadily increased over the years. In addition to the industry attributing for 10% of all humanity’s carbon emissions, it does not always provide the best working environment for its employees. What are the challenges big corporations are facing when doing business in developing countries? How have international corporations altered their supply chain in the face of global pressure to improve their social sustainability? How do gender roles shape an industry? What is the future for the garment industry? These are some of the questions that will be answered during the debate.
