Training Sustainable Textiles

The management, monitoring and communication of environmental and social aspects is increasingly important. Standards, certificates and labels are major tools used in this context. But which instruments are appropriate for which purpose? Which topics and steps in the value creation process are covered? How credible are they? What are their benefits, where are the limitations? And how can they be implemented and integrated into more comprehensive management structures? The BSD training “Sustainable Textiles: Standards, Certificates, Labels” supports you in answering these questions.

Content: The 2-day training “Sustainable Textiles: Standards, Certificates, Labels” covers the following topics:

Part I: Benefits and limitations

  • Benefits of standards, certificates and labels (i.a. standardization, monitoring, communication)
  • Limitations of certification (i.a. control / audits / samples as one part - importance of transparency, stakeholder engagement and continuous management processes)

Part II: Overview, classification and comparison

  • The most important concepts and terms (i.a. standards, accreditation, certification)
  • Assessment and categorization (i.a. according to organizational structure, topics, application, examination, relevance)
  • Tools and databases to support classification and assessment (i.a. Ecolabel Index, Label Online, Siegelklarheit)

Part III: The most important practitioners` questions and implementation steps

  • The most important practitioners` questions (i.a. which standards? which management structures? which monitoring? which communication?)
  • Steps for successul implementation (i.a. preparation, implementation, inspection, communication)

Format: The 2-day training comprises - apart from the input sessions by the trainer - several interactive sessions to practice, apply and discuss the learnings.

Target group: The training is designed for employees of sustainability / CSR, strategy, communication, sourcing and marketing departments from companies in the textile and apparel sector as well as related industries. Other stakeholders who are professionals in the field aiming for a comprehensive overview on standards, certificates and labels are also welcome.
