A new textile alliance
The Partnership for Sustainable Textiles was founded in October 2014 by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. The multi-stakeholder initiative has proclaimed the primary objective to bundle expertise and market power to implement social, environmental and economic improvements throughout the entire supply chain. It aims at benefitting from synergies, tackling challenges more efficiently and thus improving the conditions in the producer countries. The alliance has formulated standards for all production stages and the members are obliged to make an active contribution to the implementation of the standards. Deuter has joined the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles in June 2015.
