Weaving Sustainable Development Goals into the textile, retail, and apparel industry

Webcast Overview:

KPMG is delighted to launch the joint Textile Exchange – KPMG report, Threading the needle: Weaving SDGs in the textile, retail, and apparel industry. A culmination of industry interviews, nongovernment organization inputs, and desk research, the report highlights practical examples for companies in the sector and beyond, grappling with how to integrate the SDGs into their core business and global supply chain.

Join us for a panel discussion with sustainability practitioners, including a major apparel brand and a Textile Exchange member, on the report’s key findings, including how to create shared value from SDG-focused initiative. The discussion seeks to deepen executives’ understanding of the relevance of the SDGs to their business and highlight shared value opportunities and ways to identify and manage SDG integration across their business operations, supply chains, and within their product and services portfolios. 

Panelists will explore the following:

  • Topics and trends that C-suite and board members are most interested in regarding identification of SDG-focused opportunities
  • Risks associated with SDG matters and how to mitigate and prevent these risks in your organization
  • Better practice examples in addressing SDGs in business.
