Textile Alliance Shows Progress


The alliance is getting close to deciding on producing clothes without any toxic substances.

The members chose to take over the regulations from Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) and Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC). The list of MRSL thus also of the alliance are above the legal regulations REACH.

A big step forward shows the alliance in its progress of going international. Discussions are ongoing for example with producers from Bangladesh to reduce overtime and to make work places a safer place.  The agreed goal of the alliance is to pay living wages. At this stage the standards are set and the ILO is in conversation with the alliance to help finalizing the standards.
