The previous head Noor Naqschbandi hands over the management of the secretariat of the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles to Linda Schraml. Over the past 15 years, Linda Schraml has worked at the interface between private sector and development cooperation – for GIZ, the German Association for International Cooperation, and other organizations. Among other things, she has worked for GIZ in Ethiopia, where she gained insights into production facilities and global textile supply chains.
The German government has been advocating for social and ecological supply chains for years and has, among other things, launched the multi-stakeholder initiative Partnership for Sustainable Textiles, the government seal Green Button and the platform Seal Clarity. These three instruments are now combined within GIZ in the sector project “Sustainable Consumption”. The change in leadership enables Noor Naqschbandi to concentrate on managing this project as program manager.
