In recent years, the textile and apparel industry has come under scrutiny for the negative impact it has on the global environment, and this has pushed sustainability to the forefront of the business agenda in many companies. To this end, several major brands have responded by setting out sustainability plans and a number of organisations have developed standards relating to sustainable production. However, there is still a long way to go before the industry becomes carbon neutral. In this report, Esther Verburg, the general manager of MADE-BY Benelux -- a European not-for-profit organisation which aims to improve environmental and social conditions in the fashion industry -- provides insight into what makes a good sustainability strategy and the importance of implementing this within a company's business plan. She discusses the key environmental and social issues and also offers her opinion on likely trends in the industry over the coming years in the light of these issues.
