The Partnership for Sustainable Textiles, founded in 2014, aims at social, ecological and economical improvements along the textile supply chain. The partnership comprises representatives of the German government, business, non-governmental organizations, trade unions and the standard organizations who work together in a multi-stakeholder process. At its top, the steering committee is responsible for strategically steering and developing the partnership.
Commissioned by the partnership's secretariat, ConPolicy supported the steering committee in developing a concept to transparently communicate the improvements of the partnership and to ensure accountability and credibility. For this purpose, ConPolicy conducted semi-structured interviews with all members of the steering committee, developed a proposal and moderated the steering committee's discussion concerning questions of a graded transparency.
