Supply Chains for a Better World

Maximilian Martin wants to do away with the stopgaps in supply chain and see it make real upgrades across the board. Textiles and garments are a $3 trillion industry, and Martin says world development has actually revolved around the whims of this industry. He writes an article about finding a systemic solution to tying economic viability together with social and environmental performance. It requires doing four things:

  1. Fostering total resource productivity and transparency across the supply chain
  2. Upgrading the industry infrastructure by (impact) investing
  3. Improving working conditions with a new level of ambition
  4. Studying and replicating the best practices of leading producers

The Time is Now

These ideas are based off a formal report Martin has recently had published, which is also linked to in his article. But the idea to get across is that trillion-dollar industries have trillion-dollar problems, such as electronics having to deal with toxic chemicals producing waste. Sustainable processes going hand-in-hand with the steps outlined here are how businesses can dramatically streamline their operations.
