Improving working conditions in your clothing supply chain


Do you buy clothing for a company or government? Join us for a special seminar on sustainable procurement and labour conditions. Learn more about managing risks to your organisation and supporting better working conditions in factories.


Every company, at some point, buys (professional )clothing, promotional gifts or other products that have been produced far away from Europe under less favorable working conditions. Attention for working conditions does not mean reaction after a disaster but reducing and preventing risks in advance! During this session we will, amongst others, look at the risks in the clothing industry and at the way these risks can be reduced by the choices made in the purchasing process. Practical tips are shared so you can get started yourself and don’t need to wait to be confronted with a disaster.

This 10 minute online WellMade session helps you figure out where to start with sustainable procurement. (English / Dutch version )
