Abstract

The scientific literature about supply chain management has increasingly focused on issues related to sustainability, presenting them as an important source of innovation. This paper aims at understanding how fashion companies could improve their innovation performance, and in particular at assessing the links between the adoption of sustainable (i.e., environmental and social) supply chain practices and the improvement of innovation performance. Through a survey conducted within the most important Italian fashion companies, our research hypotheses about the relationship between company innovation and supply chain sustainability will be tested and analysed.
