GERMANY: NGOs launch sustainable cotton discussion
The NGOs are looking to increase transparency in the textile supply chain
Plans to establish a new forum on sustainable cotton to look at key issues facing the textile sector and to develop alternative raw materials were tabled at the recent Berlin Fashion Week.
The first joint event organised by WWF Germany and Welthungerhilfe kicked off with a discussion on sustainable cotton and ways to increase transparency in the textile supply chain.
"Our goal is to discuss with a number of stakeholders these key issues in sustainability of raw materials for the textile sector and to develop alternatives together," said Martina Fleckenstein, director of agriculture and sustainable biomass at WWF Germany.
The next event has been scheduled for early summer 2014.
