The German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles welcomes the upload of the current supplier list of the member companies at their partner Open Supply Hub (OSH). According to the Partnership Secretariat, the new list covers all Tier 1 suppliers of member companies, i.e. the stage of confection and final manufacturing, and comprises a total of 8755 production sites worldwide.
In autumn 2022, the steering committee decided to make the transmission of Tier 1 suppliers a mandatory requirement for all alliance companies. Through the aggregated supplier list, the companies partially disclose their business relationships with the production sites.
Significant added value for the partnership’s work
Besides the gain of transparency in the supply chains of the partnership companies, the extensive register of production sites also has an impact on the work in the partnership: For the planning of projects, the Textiles Partnership Secretariat will in future be able to identify suitable regions and potential candidates for participation even before the projects begin. In addition, it now recognises from the list of suppliers from which production regions the German textile market obtains its goods. This facilitates the identification of sector risks in the regions.
