Final Report on Solidaridad Cleaner Production Program China
Solidaridad

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment has in 2008 initiated activities in view of the LAP Waste Management Plan to reduce the environmental impact of 8 materials / supply chains, one of which is textiles. Within this framework, the ministry has asked Solidaridad to put forward a project proposal aiming to implement, monitor and evaluate 5-7 pilot projects with brands or retailers active on the Dutch market to gain insights in the scope for improvements and to identify what methodology could achieve good results in an effective manner. This report describes this pilot project where 3 brands partnered with Solidaridad to support 5 suppliers, textile wet processing factories (textile dyeing or washing mills), to identify and implement improvements.
