Garment supply chain traceability tool being developed

March 26, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

The UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), the European Commission (EC), the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the International Trade Centre (ITC) and private sector partners are developing a ‘Decent Work and Transparency and Traceability Tool,’ UNECE announced during the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Due Diligence Forum recently. This collaboration is part of efforts to advance sustainable production patterns and a circular economy approach, in line with the twelfth US sustainable development goal (SDG 12).  Momentum to address traceability and sustainability in the fashion and garment industry has been increasing, according to UNECE.

EcoVadis's insight:

Sustainable development goal (SDG 12) is about ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns. Consumer needs are evolving, slowly but surely, and sustainable products are entering mainstream consumption. And this is a real revolution.
