Greenpeace Ramps Up Pressure on Brands to Control Suppliers (Oct 2012)
Updates and Sector News
Greenpeace’s Detox Campaign challenges the world’s leading clothing brands to work with suppliers to limit release of toxics into waterways. It was launched in 2011 and counts Nike, Puma, H&M as having signed up. In October, UK clothing retailer M&S joined the campaign and committed to phasing out PFCs from its supply chain and improve transparency. Greenpeace wants more and has a list of eleven chemicals it wants banned from supply chains commonly used in apparel manufacture, such as commonly used flame retardants and chlorinated solvents.
