AMSTERDAM – The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) will launch a ‘textile and apparel standard’ to boost sustainability reporting by clothing, footwear, fabrics and other textile manufacturers and retailers.

The GRI says the new move aims to address widespread concerns about the impacts of the industry, particularly when it comes to human rights issues within supply chains, as well as those related to textile waste and recycling.

It adds that while there are existing corporate or civil society led initiatives to encourage sustainable practices, “coherent and consistent disclosure is lacking.”

The GRI is now also looking for experts for its working group as it aims to set a global disclosure framework for the industry.
