Training our employees and suppliers is key to continuously improve the environmental performance of our supply chain.
In Inditex, we believe that achieving a more sustainable supply chain, with less-intensive use of natural resources and Zero Discharge in 2020 must be based on a commitment to continuous improvement. Training, both of internal professional workers and of our suppliers, is the key to achieving our objectives and to continuous improvement of the environmental performance of our supply chain. Our training programs have been developed with the collaboration of many experts, both internal and external, from all of the fields involved: chemistry, physics, engineering, textile processes, etc.
To harmonise the application of the Green to Wear Standard during the environmental evaluation of our supply chain, we have prepared the Supporting Guide for sustainable manufacturing for Green to Wear products. The aim of this guide is to help the technical team in the application of the indicators included in the Green to Wear questionnaire in order to evaluate the environmental performance of wet process mills in a proper, uniform way. This guide ensures that the decisions of different members of the technical team regarding compliance with an indicator are uniform, with no risk of differing interpretations.
As part of our collaborative agreement, the University of A Coruña has carried out a study of the different processes and technologies that exist for treating waste water from wet textile processes. Technical data sheets have been prepared for each process, explaining their operation and control. These data sheets are intended for use by both the textile mills, to help them to improve the operation of their treatment systems, and by the technical team in charge of developing and updating the Green to Wear Standard.
