Learning points

Suppliers, and the brands that buy from them, are focusing more and more on the chemicals in their supply chain.
The focus is shifting from chemicals in the finished garment to the chemicals used during the production process — and textile mills, chemical suppliers, and others need to adapt their way of working.

This webinar will help you determine the relevant problematic chemicals in your supply chain, discover ways to phase them out, and comply with the demands of the retailers and brands.
