Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA), an accreditation body working with local textile, clothing and footwear (TCF) companies to ensure their local Australian supply chains are transparent and legally compliant, has launched its new website.
This interactive platform encourages greater transparency throughout local supply chains, and seeks to help businesses better understand their legal obligations towards workers when manufacturing in Australia.
It walks businesses through the ECA accreditation process, and offers up-to-date resources and industry training as a way of promoting ethical production and supply chain management as an integral part of business.
By working collaboratively with Australian businesses, unions and promoting onshore manufacturing opportunities, ECA hopes to see the future of the Australian textile, clothing and footwear industry as one that values the fair treatment of workers, transparency, third-party compliance and ethical business practices.
It claims the new website is also tailored to help consumers develop a deeper understanding of the ECA accreditation and labelling system, and provide them with a way to identify and support ethically made Australian textile, clothing and footwear products.
ECA hopes that this new platform will link businesses with local makers, help consumers find locally made ethical products, and ultimately bring industry together to work towards a more ethical, transparent and sustainable future. (SH)
