Workshop Due Diligence EN

Purchasing practices of brands, retailers, agents and importers have a direct relation with potential social/environmental risks in the garment textile supply chain. Purchasing practices include price negotiation, sampling procedures, planning, terms of delivery and payment conditions. Poor purchasing behaviour of the ordering party can cause negative impact on how suppliers perform on labour conditions (e.g. child labour, employee retrenchment) and environmental compliancy (including animal welfare).
