OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Parallel session: Chemicals management – A global concern for the garment and footwear sector

Feb 22, 2024 | 1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

Room CC6


The manufacturing of textiles is a chemical intensive process that requires proper chemical management to minimise risks to human health and the environment throughout the life-cycle of garments and footwear. The active leadership, commitment and partnership roles of industry throughout value chains is essential to the success of the new Global Framework on Chemicals - For a Planet Free of Harm from Chemicals and Waste. A panel will discuss the relevance of the new Framework for the sector including the role of due diligence and implementation initiatives such as a UNEP project on reducing uses and releases of chemicals of concern in the textiles sector.
