A new bill has been presented in the US, requiring “transparency of at least 50% of the goods sold from raw materials to shipping regarding their environmental impact”.

So what?

If the bill is passed, it would ensure that many industries – including the fashion industry – are forced to reevaluate their operations. Issues such as forced labour which are usually hidden in a supply chain, will be revealed.

Self-regulation definitely isn’t a solution, but this new bill has the potential to drive efforts to improve industry operations and ultimately positively transform supply chains.
