20 Italian textile suppliers announced their commitment to Detox

20 companies from the Italian Prato textile district have signed up to the Greenpeace Detox campaign, which commits them to phasing out 11 chemical classes of concern, by 2020. They have set a list of all hazardous chemicals they should have eliminated from the supply chain by 2020 and have also defined shorter timelines to remove problematic hazardous chemicals including poly- and perfluorinated compounds (PFCs).

The agreement will affect over 13 thousand tons of yarn and raw materials as well as over 13 million meters of fabric every year.

The Prato-based companies have already removed several hazardous chemical groups required by the Detox campaign, including brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, organotins, and amines associated with azo.

The suppliers join six major Italian textile companies, which signed up to the Detox campaign in 2014.
