Recover™'s post

The fashion industry is facing increased scrutiny for social and labor rights, prompting a global movement to legally mandate human rights due diligence for companies. The OECD's Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises outline a risk management process for companies to identify and address negative impacts within their operations and supply chains.
New global legislations are emerging, with the EU's Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CS3D) leading the way. Several European countries, including Norway, the UK, Germany, and France, have already adopted Due Diligence laws, while others like Poland, Spain, Italy, and Ireland are in the process.
Aiming to be a frontrunner in sustainability, Recover™ is already working on compliance with the Due Diligence procedure, regardless of not being under the CS3D scope. As mechanical recyclers, our feedstock is textile waste. Therefore, the Recover™ supply chain is broad and complex as we source from different countries. Since every country has different social and economic structures, we must adapt to the needs of each culture, always ensuring human rights compliance.
In order to generate sound relationships with our suppliers, which are aligned with Recover™ business culture, the Responsible Sourcing Policy has been launched. The idea of this policy is to ensure that Recover’s raw material is textile waste and that providers of these materials are improving their compliance with Recover’s help.

    The fashion industry's heightened focus on social and labor rights is driving a global push for legally mandated human rights due diligence. The OECD's Guidelines provide a risk management framework, and the EU's Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive is setting a precedent. Recover™ stands out as a frontrunner in sustainability, proactively working on Due Diligence compliance despite not falling under CS3D. Their Responsible Sourcing Policy reflects a commitment to human rights, addressing the complexities of a diverse supply chain sourced from various countries. This aligns with broader efforts to ensure ethical practices in the industry.

      The fashion industry has always escaped scrutiny when it comes to human rights violations and or environmental conservation as it's hard to make the charges stick. I hope this is a new beginning where they all are held accountable and do the right thing

        It's encouraging to see companies like Recover actively engaging in human rights due diligence, even beyond the scope of emerging legislations like the EU's CS3D. That's great 👍
