SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

Sustainable development requires peace and stability. Effective, responsible and transparent institutions, combined with judicial independence, the protection of human rights and effective law enforcement are all essential preconditions. Nevertheless, child labour is still globally prevalent and corruption can destroy progress on social and environmental issues.

Exploitation, child labour and corruption are sometimes still present in the textile supply chains that branch out worldwide. The members of the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles have set the goal for themselves of changing these conditions and of making the contractual partners in the supply chain commit to the Partnership's social objectives. zu verpflichten.

In addition, all Partnership members must commit to zero tolerance for corruption and set individual goals to prevent corruption in their own company or in their supply chain. In this sense, the German Federal Government, associations, non-governmental organisations, trade unions and standard organisations also use their influence with political decision-makers. Manufacturers, retailers and brands also undertake to establish appropriate processes for dealing with cases of child and/or forced labour, to remedy them through effective measures and to prevent these forms of work in the future.
