Have you ever thought about the journey of your clothes, and the impact they have on people’s lives and the environment?
This week, HSBC, WWF and WaterAid is at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the world’s largest sustainable fashion event, to demonstrate why water is critical to encouraging a shift towards sustainable fashion.
Together with HSBC, WWF and WaterAid have developed an interactive installation to demonstrate the importance of water provision and stewardship to promoting the sustainability of global apparel supply chain.
In 2018, HSBC and WaterAid launched a three year programme to deliver essential water and sanitation services in apparel factories and nearby communities in Bangladesh and India.
As well as improving living and working conditions, this funding will enable WaterAid to pilot test metrics as part of the wider Business Case for WASH project, which aims to provide evidence of the business benefits and financial value of WASH interventions.
