Nordstrom Inc.


This CSR mini-case focuses on CSR issues related to the supply chain in the fashion industry. The case is based on the Fashion Futures 2025 report by the Forum for the Future, and focuses on anticipated supply shortages, workforce issues, technological advances, water shortages, high energy prices, re-use and remanufacturing changes. The case calls for students to develop a strategy for Nordstrom as they prepare for this changed new world.

The second-place team was originally composed of students from a variety of participating universities. The other three students dropped out, citing irreconcilable differences. The student from the University of Puget Sound asked to present on her own, which was granted because of the exceptional circumstances. MICCSR teams are expected to have 3-4 participants.
