The fashion industry is transforming from linear to more circular business models. How can we leverage this transformation to reimagine and rebuild the global fashion system so that it works for all? Through Keeping Workers in the Loop (KWIL), we convened over 45 major fashion industry players—established brands, emerging circular businesses, worker representatives, sustainable fashion experts, and international institutions—to explore this very question.
From automation to climate disruption, this report considers the impact of a changing industry context and dynamics on workers and offers recommendations to industry and policymakers on creating a just, fair and inclusive circular fashion system.
As part of Generation Equality, BSR, in partnership with the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), have launched a report that sheds light on the current state of corporate efforts to advance gender equality in the jewelry industry. We share four insights from the report.
How will circular fashion, at scale, impact job opportunities and quality? Keeping Workers in the Loop brings together industry leaders and stakeholder to explore circular fashion and jobs in the decade ahead by taking a futures approach.
Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, circular economic models had been sprouting up at increasing speed in the fashion industry. BSR’s new brief, Taking a People-Centered Approach to a Circular Fashion Economy, explores the potential social impacts that may emerge from a mainstream shift to circular fashion.
In partnership with Laudes Foundation, BSR has developed a brief on the potential social impacts of a shift to circular fashion based on BSR’s research and stakeholder engagement.
Over the past year, The Estée Lauder Companies and Aveda have been working with LMR Naturals by IFF, BSR, and Envisible to establish a blockchain-enabled traceable supply chain that identifies opportunities to deliver sustainability benefits to all the actors in the supply chain. This post is the third in a series documenting the journey of this innovative partnership.
Despite the importance of Italy in luxury supply chains and the high prevalence of women in the workforce, little is known about gender inequalities faced by women working behind the prized “Made in Italy” label. Kering and its family of Italian brands—Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Kering Eyewear, and Pomellato—partnered with BSR to understand the status of women working in their Italian luxury supply chain and identify opportunities to support gender equality in the country.
