Sustainability advice

When exporting textile products to the EU, you will notice that more and more buyers will include sustainability issues in their purchasing policies. Thinking of sustainability issues in the textiles sector, the main focus is often social issues, such as child labour, working conditions (e.g. contract, payment, representation) and workers health and safety. However, the environmental aspects in the production process are increasingly gaining attention: 
1. Water use and pollution 
2. Energy use 
3. Chemical use
