At present there are several conflicts that are having a direct impact on the people working in the outdoor industry’s supply chain, in particular the respective situations in Ukraine and Myanmar. The European Outdoor Group invites Fair Wear Foundation to give an overview of ‘heightened human rights due diligence’ with the aim of building awareness and understanding of the wide-ranging affects these events have on the human rights and what the sector can do to address the workers affected.

Moderator Dr. Jane Turnbull, European Outdoor Group’s sustainability manager who has over 20 years’ experience working in the outdoor industry and has worked in a variety of roles including with brands, retailers and in an academic capacity. She has worked with the European Outdoor Group for over 3 years and in her role as Sustainability Project Manager she encourages brands to increase industry action to bring environmental and ethical considerations to the complex challenges of the textile supply chain.

Mariette van Amstel, the Fairwear Foundation Head of Membership supports companies on their journey to support better labour conditions for factory workers around the world. This has become a key focal point in global supply and value chains and is therefore a key contributor or detractor of Regenerative Value Creation that also advances the concrete implementation of human rights.
