On the sidelines of the Indo-German intergovernmental consultations, Hans-Joachim Fuchtel, Parliamentary State Secretary in the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development will address “The Partnership for Sustainable Textiles – An Opportunity for Global Supply Chains” at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in New Delhi on October 5.

Established in October 2014, Germany-based 'The Partnership for Sustainable Textiles – An Opportunity for Global Supply Chains' is multi-stakeholder initiative, comprising textile and clothing industry, retailers, trade unions and civil society, which pools the strength and expertise of its members in order to bring about social, ecological and economic improvements all along the textile supply chain. In so doing, the Textiles Partnership aims to tackle common challenges more effectively, exploit synergies through joint projects on the ground, learn from one another and thus improve underlying conditions in the producer countries.

The Partnership has said that Indian textile and garment industries are of great importance at all levels of the value chain – given that globally, India is the second biggest producer of cotton as well as for further processing of textiles and garments.

India has great potential to profit at all levels of the value chain due to the increasing demand of sustainable textiles. Germany's Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Gerd Müller, implemented the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles to improve the conditions along the complete textile value chain.

The German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles comprises of more than 150 member organizations, currently covering approximately 45 per cent of the German textile retail industry and is aiming at a long-term market coverage of 75 per cent. Currently, the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles is increasingly aligning itself internationally.

Therefore, the Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development as a member of the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles, is implementing its targets at the levels of the EU, OECD or into the G-7 process, amongst others, the Partnership said. (SH)
