This is the third episode in a miniseries about decarbonization. It requires a little explanation. Every month I host Supplier Meet-ups for the Asia Garment Hub. Supplier Meetups are unrecorded, off-the-record conversations open only to suppliers. From May to August our sessions were focused on decarbonization. As a result of those discussions, many of the manufacturers participating indicated an interest in moving the conversation into spaces that include non-manufacturers. As a baby step in that direction, I wrote a piece for the Asia Garment Hub called “Practical Tips for Talking to Manufacturers About Decarbonization.” This episode is an audio version of that piece.
Logistical note. I’m going to be traveling quite a lot the next couple of weeks, so it may take me a bit of extra time to get the remaining decarbonization content out. But I promise you, it will come. Thank you for your patience as I try to balance everything!
