AMSTERDAM — Environmental campaign group Greenpeace has revealed to Ecotextile News its intention to take a “pause from active campaigning” in the textile and apparel sector given the “significant progress” made by various industry actors in the chemical management arena.

The global direct-action group will continue to operate in the sector but it says this will be at a greater distance, taking a more ‘arms-length’ role as an industry ‘watchdog’ and moth-balling its Detox direct action campaigns against fashion brands – for now at least.

The confirmation comes after Greenpeace unveiled its new Global Textile Procurement Trial Standard as it moves towards selling branded promotional merchandise once more to help fund its campaign activities.

These moves will both be a hot topic of discussion at the upcoming Planet Textiles 2019 Summit on sustainability in Barcelona which takes place at ITMA.
