Building Back Better by Buying Better
In line with this year's annual topic "Responsible Purchasing Practices", the 7th members' meeting of the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles will be held under the motto "Building Back Better by Buying Better". The focus will be on how partnerships in the supplier network can be strengthened through responsible purchasing practices. As always, a number of other Partnership topics will also be on the agenda.
The event will again take place virtually, this time we will use the MEA App. Members can find detailed information about the event and the sessions in the closed members area. There you will also find the link to the app.
