Fashion NGOs ask EU for sustainability open data principles

Just Style, October 2021

"The co-signees believe that clearly defining the disclosure format and data points required in the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive will increase adoption of the reporting framework and ensure its scalability."

The open letter urges EU members of Parliament and the EU Commission to adopt and incorporate open data principles within the proposed Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive to ensure stakeholder access, interoperability and collaboration.

Natalie Grillon, executive director at the Open Apparel Registry told Just Style exclusively:

“At the Open Apparel Registry, our theory of change centres on the belief that opening up supply chain data is necessary to enable interoperability and accountability across the apparel industry, and facilitate collaboration at the facility level."
