Supply chain sustainability is a key component of corporate responsibility; therefore, the management of environmental, social, and economic impacts con- tributes to an improved business decision-making process (Sisco et al. 2010 ). When a factory building collapsed in Bangladesh, killing hundred of workers, it was not the fi rst time the long and complex textile and fashion supply chain shocked the world and drew the (negative) attention of politicians, the media, human rights groups, etc. In fact, this incident displayed the textile and fashion industry s tragic social and environmental performance climax over decades. Hence, and beyond any comparison, it becomes important to work on a single initiative to be accepted and implemented in the short term. Academia can make a new contribution by opening the UNGC Code of Conduct and Manual with a deeper approach in mind, delving into each principle to analyze the recommended guidelines and compare them to level 3 of the SAC Higg Index 2.0. 80 M.Á.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
