SUSTAINABLE TEXTILE OF THE ASIAN REGION
Welcome to the Platform on Sustainable Textiles of the Asian Region: the STAR Network. Established by producing associations of the textile and garment industries of several Asian countries, the platform provides an opportunity to share information in the field of sustainability standards, to increase transparency within the industry and to learn from innovative initiatives tackling sustainability issues.
The globally agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are setting the framework for producers and workers, for buyers and consumers and for political players alike: Ensure sustainable production and consumption patterns (Goal 12). In this regard, the platform is a response to the ongoing globalization and complexity of textile and garment supply chains. It supports a better understanding of the mechanisms within the industry with the aim of jointly shaping its future towards sustainability and long term growth.
