Social Responsibility Committee

The Social Responsibility Committee identifies and studies global social responsibility issues and trends that affect the U.S. apparel and footwear industry. AAFA disseminates that information to committee members who meet regularly to discuss these issues, develop and/or share best practices and, when necessary, develop the industry’s plan of action in response to specific issues.

"The Social Responsibility committee provides the broadest forum available, both nationally and internationally, for AAFA members to discuss common issues of corporate social responsibility."
