HANOI - French sporting goods retailer Decathlon and German development agency GIZ have joined forces in a bid to reduce the environmental impact of Vietnam's garment and textile factories.

The partnership will focus on helping Decathlon's Vietnamese suppliers to switch from coal-fired energy to biomass, while offering free training on issues such as climate change and chemical management.

Part of the driving force is the German Due Diligence Act, due to come into force in 2023, and the European Union's proposed mandatory due dilience legislation which will make companies liable for environmental and human rights risks in their global supply chains.
