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.
