S&P supports the Dutch Fashion ActionPlan (a coalition of industry bodies, fashion companies and the Dutch government) with communication. This Actionplan aims to increase transparency in the apparel industry, especially with regard to sustainability.
We have launched the website www.communicatieduurzaamtextiel.nl in October 2015 and aim to inspires and help Dutch fashion brands and retailers to take a next step and become more transparent through communicating about their sustainability activities.
The website offers them many inspiring good practices, researches, tips, an infographic and eight practical tools about topic such as sustainability strategy, employee engagement and crisis management.
Macintosh Retail Group is a big player in the shoe industry. Manfield, Brantano and Jones Bootmaker are some of their well-known brands.
S&P helped Macintosh to define their sustainability goals and KPIs and wrote their CSR report according to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Guidelines.
Many fashion companies realize they need to become more sustainable and they have no time to lose. However, the supply chain is complex. How and where to start? To help fashion companies answer these questions, ABN AMRO and Schuttelaar & Partners have developed the Sustainable Fashion Guide.
The Sustainable Fashion Guide is a practical tool the fashion industry – from multinationals to individual entrepreneurs – can use to become more sustainable. The Sustainable Fashion Guide contains 25 questions covering three main areas (sustainability strategy, the supply chain, communication). Each question offers several solutions, and these can be used to determine whether a business is a 'front runner', 'part of the pack' or a 'latecomer' to the sustainability initiative. Schuttelaar & Partners developed the Sustainable Fashion Guide (concept, design and content) and supported ABN AMRO in organising the launch and PR of the Guide.
Solidaridad and Schuttelaar & Partners have teamed up in organizing a series of short seminars to help you working towards a more sustainable supply chain.
The Sustainable Textiles Lab invites you and all the other actors in the textile supply chain to join hands and together aim to bring sustainability to a higher level.
We don’t just talk, we take action!
