After a year-long investigation into toxic water pollution in China, Greenpeace has published its findings in a report called ""Dirty Laundry"". The report reveals that hazardous chemicals are being released into two major rivers in China by two textile factories which have links to several global apparel brands -- including Adidas, Nike and Puma. In this report, Robin Anson examines the arguments for and against making the brands responsible for the environment practices of their suppliers. He also discusses the responses of some of the major brands which have been targeted in the report. This edition of Fast track will be especially beneficial to those who need to be aware of the environmental issues facing a multi-faceted supply chain as well as those with a special interest in corporate social responsibility (CSR).
