Decision on binding deadline and volume targets

As already communicated in the press release dated 24th of November 2017, the Partnership Steering Committee agreed at its 16th meeting on specific binding deadlines targets for all members. These deadlines, together with the recommended targets, form the requirements for the forthcoming Review Process.

Under these requirements, the Textiles Partnership will distinguish as of 2018 between

  • binding targets that must be pursued by all members by a specified point in time
  • recommended targets that should be pursued by all members, and
  • freely definable targets based on the content and structure of the indicator grid. These targets can largely be set by members as they see fit.

Specific targets for 2018, 2019 and 2020 have been set and individually tailored to the stakeholder groups in the interests of continuous target pursuit. All members thus contribute to the common vision of making the textile supply chain socially and ecologically sustainable.

From indicator grid to individual roadmap

In the course of drawing up a Roadmap and taking part in the resulting Review Process, members answer selected questions on topics such as business practices and supply chain management, risk analysis, complaints mechanisms and communication within the company.

In the interests of the ongoing achievement of targets, concrete targets have been specified for 2018, 2019 and 2020, and individually tailored to the Stakeholder Groups. In this way, all members contribute to the shared vision of making the textile supply chain socially and environmentally sustainable.
