At the congress, 100 speakers were asked how sustainable transformation can succeed and which solutions they offer. One of these speakers was steering committee moderator Frank Zach. At the opening plenary he described challenges of the textile industry, due diligence requirements as well as goals, processes and projects of the Partnership.

Dialogue forum on 'Ways to living wages'

How can brand and retail companies in Germany contribute to the payment of higher wages that will secure a decent life for workers in the textile production? What is the relationship between due diligence and legal framework conditions? What has been achieved so far and where is there still some catching up to do?

These questions shaped the dialogue forum with Sabine Ferenschild (SÜDWIND e.V.), Fabian Kusch (Bierbaum-Proenen GmbH & Co. KG), Ansgar Lohmann (KiK Textilien und Non-Food GmbH), Frank Zach (DGB Bundesvorstand) and Anosha Wahidi (BMZ). Afterwards the participants could also ask their questions in the Fishbowl.
