This is part two of our conversation with Matthijs Crietee, Secretary General of the International Apparel Federation (IAF).

In this episode, Matthijs offers some concrete examples of partnership models, and shares his thoughts on how digitization can help reshape business processes, and by extension, supply chain relationships. He also shares his take on why manufacturers have been by-and-large left out of sustainable fashion conversations and the impact that this has on the supply chain as a whole.

Our episodes this week are thanks to our collaboration with the GIZ FABRIC. The FABRIC project is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and supports the Asian textile industry in its transformation towards fair production for people and the environment.

Matthiijs moderated the ninth edition of GIZ FABRIC’s online seminar series called “Getting Through the Crisis Together: Asian Dialogues on Sustainability in the Textile and Garment Industry.
