Even as the fashion industry has made major strides in corporate social responsibility over the last two decades, the tragic factory fire in Pakistan last month shows the sector still has a long way to go.
The fire in Karachi, which killed 300 people, also shows that, as the industry rushes to find the next low-cost producer after China, companies almost have to start all over again in ensuring compliance with CSR issues such as safety, workers’ rights and environmental issues in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Vietnam, and in areas in Central America.
