SMART Textile & Garments
SMART Textile & Garments is funded by the European Union and co-funded by private sector partners (brands, retailers and factories) and aims at improving working conditions, promoting labour and environmental standards and reducing labour right abuses in the textile and garment industry. The project builds on the previous SMART projects implemented between 2013-2019 and will further upscale, expand and strengthen responsible and sustainable manufacturing practices across the Myanmar garment industry.
Further, European consumers are informed about sustainable fashion, specifically on sustainable purchasing practices and sustainable production in Myanmar in order to increase their knowledge and awareness on sustainable fashion and take informed purchasing decisions.
SMART Textile & Garments fostered cooperation among all actors in the value chain in Europe and Myanmar to improve their collaboration, advocacy and to replicate successful sustainable practices in the garment and textile sector. See more
