New seminars and exchange formats from August to December 2020


New seminars and exchange formats from August to December 2020

In the upcoming months, the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles will again offer its members a range of support services and exchange formats. This year we have converted all seminars to online formats.

In the practical workshop series "Sustainable supply chain management in times of and after COVID-19" in August and September will deal, amongst others, with the following questions:

  • How can human rights implications be considered in business decisions even in difficult times?
  • How can monitoring be strengthened through greater worker involvement?
  • How can supply chain management be made more sustainable through cooperation within the company?

In addition, an accompanying programme about the conduct of the company's individual risk analysiswill start in October. Knowledge of the most important risks along the supply chain is the basis for the 2021 review process in the Textiles Partnership. On three dates, participants will be able to exchange information on the individual steps of the risk analysis and learn from each other.

In addition, two online seminars are held in cooperation with other partners: On 20 August, the BMZ Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation will present possibilities for sourcing textiles from Africa. And on 10 September the Fair Wear Foundation will give an introduction to its Labour Minute and Product Costing Calculators.

Further information can be found in the flyer. Participation is reserved for representatives of members of the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles and Grüner-Knopf certified companies.
