You are among the most sustainable companies and your company can serve
as a model advising and supporting others to follow your example. You should maintain these high
levels and promote your activities towards green transition. Your contribution is crucial as the textile
industry negatively impacts all three pillars of sustainability – social, economic, and environmental.
Socially, the industry has been criticized for poor working conditions, low wages, and exploitation of
workers. Economically, it can lead to job losses in local communities due to outsourcing and the use
of cheap labor in developing countries. Environmentally, the textile industry is known for its high
water consumption, chemical pollution, and contribution to waste and greenhouse gas emissions.
Therefore, all three pillars are affected by the negative impacts of the textile industry and any action
and good practice count.
