Textiles Partnership meets to work and learn jointly

At 11th April more than 100 members of the Textiles Partnership met at the Partnership’s Working Meeting in Cologne. Ongoing and new projects of the Textiles Partnership were discussed in 14 break-out sessions. The focus was put on the projects regarding living wages and grievance mechanisms as well as the implementation and integration of block chain technologies into the supply chain. Further topics were the promotion of organic cotton, sustainable man-made fibres, chemical and environmental management, water waste standards, combating child labour and approaches to reduce greenhouse gases in the textile industry. The sessions at the Working Meeting covered almost the whole range of topics within the Textiles Partnership. The members worked together with the aim of reaching real improvements within textile supply chains – on an individual as well as on a collective level in the form of Partnership Initiatives.

The next Working Meeting will take place on 18th September 2019 in Hamburg.
