Knowing this fact and other critical insights about transparency’s value to your clothing and apparel company is just one of the key reasons to get this report:

The ROI of Transparency: A Consumer Market Research Study and the accompanying Clothing & Apparel Special Report.

Even more valuable is that your transparency efforts will be guided with data-driven implementation methods.

You’ll learn what transparent practices to do first — real actionable steps — for the greatest return on investment.

And here’s the good news for you (and why you need to start now).

The clothing and apparel industry still has significant transparency potential. Everybody — consumers, industry, trade groups — is talking about it, but not many companies are actually doing it.

How much your clothing & apparel brand takes transparency to heart directly impacts your customer relationships, and your future earnings. Why wait before others get that 34%? Or the additional 27% who consider clothing & apparel transparency as one of their buying variables? When you combine both groups that’s 61% of the population.

This report answers those questions and gives you tools to make an action plan.
