In 2014, initiated by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Alliance for Sustainable Textiles was founded. This multi-stakeholder alliance aims to achieve social, environmental and economic improvements along the textile supply chain. Representatives from politics, industry, non-governmental organizations, trade unions and standard organizations work together in various working groups.
ConPolicy supports these working groups by moderating selected meetings. In the working group “review”, moderated by Prof. Dr. Christian Thorun, the internal review process of the alliance objectives and the individual members is the focal topic. The working group on “implementation and internationalization”, moderated by Dr. Max Vetter, focuses on the development of concrete alliance initiatives.
