EU resolution backs mandatory textile reporting

Written by John Mowbray

BRUSSELS – The European Parliament has adopted a new resolution that officially supports efforts to improve the Commission’s garment flagship initiative; as well as supporting national sustainable textile initiatives in Germany, Netherlands, France and Denmark. Primarily aimed at sourcing practices in Bangladesh, the resolution also calls for mandatory and enforceable CSR clauses in all bilateral trade and investment agreements signed by the EU, and also call for a mandatory reporting system to provide greater transparency within the value chain of a single product, from textile production to garment retailer.
