The Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textile is proving to be a relevant and effective way of improving sustainability in the sector, according to a new independent report.

Research consultants Avance Impact say companies participating in the agreement are now tracking down risks in their production chain and taking appropriate action to address them.

Improvements can already be seen at a number of production locations, such as the introduction of a living wage at a number of factories in Turkey and Pakistan, as well as collective projects on issues including child labour, water use and chemicals.
