Enabling Informed Choices from Factory to Fashion

Duration: 1 hour 48 minutes | Actual Webinar Date: 20 August 2020

Various NGOs have highlighted how toxic chemicals being discharged from wet-processing (dyeing/printing/washing/tanning) factories are having an adverse impact to workers and our environment at large.

With that, industry associations such as SAC, ZDHC, AMFORI and the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles (PST) have set guidelines to enable resource efficiency during the manufacturing process. And success is recognized by the right to use the Green Button eco-label.

In cooperation with GIZ and Green Button, this webinar outlines the steps to earn your own Green Button, and enable informed choices from factory to fashion.
