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.

They bring together members for networking and learning opportunities, governmental and non-governmental organization engagement, and understanding and addressing emerging issues globally, especially in the corporate responsibility and sustainability space.
