Businesses

Approximately fifty businesses in the garment and textile sector signed the agreement on 4 July 2016. The number of signatories has grown since then. The aim is for 80% of all garment and textile businesses in the Netherlands to have signed the agreement by 2021.

All signatories support the aims and arrangements set out in the agreement.

In the third year after signing, businesses make public what risks there are in terms of working conditions, the environment and animals in their supply chain and what they do about it. The businesses that have signed the agreement, take into account the transparency criteria. After 4 July 2020, the annual assessment round starts. During this round, it is determined whether the communication of third-year businesses meets the set criteria. Business that signed the agreement after 1 January 2018, are not required yet to communicate about these risks this year (2020).
