Best Supply Chain Initiative
Open to any fashion brand or retailer that operates in the UK and/or Ireland.
This award recognises the fashion brand or retailer that has made the most progress in improving its supply chain over the past 12 months, with reference to a specific initiative.
Judges will be looking for evidence that the company identified a critical issue in its supply chain and found a way to improve it, or eradicate the problem altogether. This may have been through a process of collaborating with one or more suppliers – for example, to monitor resource use and reduce waste, or to address concerns about working conditions; putting in place systems that improved transparency; or by investing in new technologies such as blockchain to solve a particular challenge.
The winning initiative will be able to clearly demonstrate positive outcomes.
