Shortcomings in clothing industry action plan

The industry organisations Modint, Inretail and VGT acknowledge the major issues affecting the clothing and textile sector in their ‘Plan of action to promote sustainability in the Dutch clothing and textile sector 1.0’ as presented to Minister Ploumen. Both they and the Minister wish to bring about structural improvements. The plan has been welcomed by CNV, FNV, Greenpeace, National India Workgroup, Clean Clothes Campaign and SOMO but has also drawn their criticism: “This plan makes some steps in the right direction, but is not yet ambitious and revolutionary enough to cause a change of direction.”
