Argentina drafts code for textile sector

Argentina’s Global Compact Network and Sustainable Textile Center has launched the Code of Conduct and Handbook of Textile and Fashion. The textile and fashion industry is important for Argentine economy, but from the point of view of sustainability, this industry often operates at the expense of the environment and social factors.

The code was developed by the Nordic Fashion Association and the Nordic Initiative Clean and Ethical (NICE) in partnership with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The initiative for preparing a code, specifically for the textile and apparel sector, was proposed by the UNGC in May 2012 at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit in Denmark. 

Many companies recognize the need to collaborate and partner with governments, civil society, labor and the United Nations. The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. This can help ensure markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere. 

With over 10,000 corporate participants and other stakeholders from over 130 countries, the Global Compact is the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world.
