Inditex and the International Apparel Federation join forces
The Spanish-based group and the International Apparel Federation have signed an agreement to drive a transformation in the global fashion industry in the fields of circularity, traceability and worker well-being
The owner of brands such as Zara and Massimo Dutti and the International Apparel Federation (IAF), which represents 100 000 manufacturers from more than 40 countries, have signed a framework agreement to drive “significant transformation” in the global garment industry through clear objectives and lines of action. The aim is to support the development of projects focused on areas that promote a more respectful industry for people and the planet by boosting circularity, traceability and transparency across the supply chains, and worker well-being.  

“Collaborating with apparel federations is key to driving a change that reaches the entire apparel and textile industry, addressing both the social and environmental challenges ahead. This agreement will allow us to continue developing and integrating best practices, foster innovation and invest in the most efficient technologies as this contributes to raising standards and competitiveness of the industry as a whole”, commented Inditex’s CEO, Óscar García Maceiras.

Cem Altan, IAF’s President, added, “we are thrilled that Inditex shares our vision of joining forces across the supply chain to advance sustainable transformational change in the apparel industry. Linking the forces of Inditex with the global apparel manufacturing community will allow us to focus on real change on the ground, beneficial to all parties involved and with positive effects for the existing global industry initiatives in which Inditex and IAF participate”.
