Germany - Partnership for Sustainable Textiles is growing - September 30, 2017

The Partnership for Sustainable Textiles is a multi-stakeholder initiative with about 150 members from the economy, politics and the civil society. The trade unions are a member of the initiative from the start. The stakeholders strive to improve the working conditions in the global textile production – from the production of raw goods for textile production to the disposal of textiles. The Partnership was founded in October 2014 in response to the deadly accidents in textile factories in Bangladesh and Pakistan. The current members of the Textiles Partnership cover more than half of the German textile market. Until 2018 they are expected to cover 75 percent of it.
