About the course

General information

  • Why you should take this course

    Fashion brands and retailers are not always aware of the impacts of their buying practices on the suppliers. In fact, irresponsible buying practices can be responsible for most of the difficulties the suppliers encounter in an attempt to meet the brands expectations, and could have adverse effect on the brand. This is why the transition towards “responsible” buying practices is becoming more and more important as a way of supporting suppliers in becoming more compliant and this provides the expertise and tools to help your company transition towards a more responsible buying practice.
