About this book

Economic development that is environmentally, socially and ethically sound is at the forefront of contemporary debates all over the world. This is especially relevant to international trade where goods manufactured in least developed countries are being exported to developed countries via international supply chains.

This book looks at Bangladesh's ready-made garments industry - the seventh largest in the world - facing demands for environmental and social management according to standards set by consumers in environmentally progressive societies.
