A thousand-mile journey begins with a single step, and that first step can be the hardest one to take. Embarking on supply chain improvement requires a challenging first step. Before you can monitor your supply chain, you need to map out all the players. Only then can you monitor your supply chain and drive improvements in social and environmental issues. And you quickly realize you cannot do this on your own.
With increasing regulations from countries around the world enforcing such monitoring and improvements, traceability is now an imperative rather than a choice. Where there is a challenge, entrepreneurs step up to deliver solutions. Start-ups also embark on a thousand-mile journey with many hard steps.
Join us for a QIMA fireside chat with Roman Houlbreque, Chief Customer Officer at Retraced, to discuss these traceability challenges, collaborative solutions, and how Retraced has journeyed from a traceability start-up to an established player.
As Chief Customer Officer at Retraced, Roman Houlbreque is responsible for developing the strategy to lead global fashion and textile brands towards sustainable supply chain management. His unique insights into textile supply chains result directly from his close work with diverse stakeholders from the industry. He leads the philosophy of Retraced to focus on suppliers’ needs to enable close collaboration and transparency in fashion supply chains to master any regulative challenge of the industry.
