“There’s no point in just checking off a list”

Fairtrade wants to create a new label for textiles. Clothing made from fairly produced cotton is currently available, but further processing only has to comply with core labor guidelines of the International Labour Organization that prohibit violations such as child labor or forced labor. Going forward, the whole production chain will have to comply with fair standards, including conditions for the workers in the factories. The first Fairtrade-certified shirts and trousers could be available for purchase in three years, according to Maren Sartory from Fairtrade Germany, who was interviewed by Ingo Arzt on behalf of the Council for Sustainable Development.
