Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In light of the global trend toward sustainability, many fashion companies have had to reshape their operational strategies. For example, over the past few years, we have witnessed many fashion companies going green by re-engineering their business processes and establishing formal sustainability programs; these companies aimed to achieve the 5 R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle, re-design, and re-image). In this Special Issue, we aim to publish state-of-the-art research concerning sustainability in fashion business operations. The research methodology can be qualitative or quantitative in nature and may follow any standard business study research methodology (e.g., analytical modeling, statistical-based empirical analysis or case studies). We invite interested authors to contribute to this Special Issue by submitting technical research and comprehensive review articles.
