Fast Fashion and CSR | Essay

The issues we see in the clothing industry today are serious and have a great impact on many clothing companies.

They must decide to what extent they want to go down a more sustainable path and improve working conditions, or whether they think only of it from a business perspective, where it is profits that are most important.

Corporate social responsibilities are an important factor from a company's point of view, and it is something that is incredibly important to take a stand on. If you don't care about corporate social responsibilities, it can cost you a lot of potential customers.
