Join us in Santa Monica for the 2nd Annual Traceability Conference. This seminar will take place in conjunction with AAFA’s Environmental Committee, Product Safety Council, and Social Responsibility Committee Meetings.

After last year’s successful pilot program on Traceability, we are pleased to offer this full-day seminar to discuss the vexing issue of traceability and transparency throughout the supply chain. The agenda will focus on several critical issues which the apparel and footwear industry faces in a complex compliance environment and will comprise of a workshop-style format allowing attendees to delve deeply into finding solutions for their own companies. The workshop presentations will explore three specific categories related to supply chain traceability including labor; sustainability and the environment; and, raw materials with a specific focus on the SEC’s conflict minerals ruling. Additionally, there will be a special presentation on water conservation and re-use.
