Policy Recommendations for a Sustainable Textile Industry

Textile supply chains are notorious for human rights and environmental abuses. This White Paper from the Fair Trade Advocacy Office and Fashion Revolution, including a needs analysis of sustainable SMEs by Bocconi University, aims to tackle this problem. It highlights nineteen policy recommendations as solutions for a more fair, sustainable and circular textile sector and how these are also beneficial for small and medium sized Enterprises (SMEs).

This new White Paper is designed to present the current political debate at the European Union level in the area of sustainable and fair textile production and provide policy recommendations on the big challenges of the garment industry.
