News: Corporatewear Project
The CRR hosted a pre-project workshop in Nottingham on 8th May.
Thursday, 29th May 2008
This was attended by 25 representatives from the corporatewear sector and provided an opportunity for leaders from across the corporatewear supply chain to discuss, deliberate and define a plan of action. Project leaders are currently finalising individual work plans ahead of the official project launch date on the 1st June.The project will address issues in three key areas: garment design and construction, use of alternative fibres, and end of life management. In addition, a new project was created as a result of feedback from the workshop which will look at the issue of taxation in corporatewear.
