G-Star publishes DETOX Report 2019
In 2013, Greenpeace exposed that Chinese factories working for renowned fashion brands discharged wastewater, containing traces of hazardous chemicals, into rivers and oceans. Like many others, G-Star signed a DETOX Commitment with Greenpeace to address this issue and ban the use of hazardous chemicals from its products and production processes by January 2020.
With the deadline expired, G-Star is now proud to report that wastewater tests of its suppliers responsible for 85% of its production volume show a compliance rate of 95%. Aligned with other efforts to be a transparent company, this report explains how G-Star and its supply chain partners have managed to achieve this and shows how G-Star will continue to work on the topic of chemical management in the future.
