After 15 months of working closely with the supplier community and within its facilities, the initiative is taking root. The company journeys down a new path with the ultimate goal of creating an environmental, social and governance corporate platform that is both meaningful and measurable.
“Sustainable practices are as important today as product safety, fair labor and supply chain safety were 10 years ago today,” said Andrea Routzahn, chief merchant at alphabroder | Prime Line. “Our industry invests considerable resources to maintain and verify product and supply chain safety and socially responsible supply chain practices. In 2020, alphabroder | Prime Line allocated additional resources to examine our sustainability protocols and establish a corporate Green Team Initiative. The Green Team is a dedicated cross-functional team passionate about all things sustainable.”
