Achieving together what one cannot do alone.

Best Practices

In their commitment to the improvement of social, ecological, and economic conditions, the members of the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles make a significant contribution along the entire textile supply chain. Ten members present select projects in which they strive to make products and processes more sustainable.

The best practices offer valuable information, implementation experiences, and fundamental knowledge that make the realisation of similar projects easier. Furthermore, it is an invitation to participate in an exchange with other Partnership members or to join already existing projects.
