On the 25th February BEPI ran a session focussed on the textiles sector as part of series of monthly BEPI Introduction Sessions being held this year.
These sessions provide a general introduction to BEPI, but for this session the focus was on textile supply chain and high priority environmental areas for the sector, including water, wastewater and chemicals which, through the BEPI process, performance is targeted. Attendees at the session were also introduced to the BEPI platform which allows members to manage producer progress and, as a first step, to invite producers to complete the important self-assessment.Following the event Stuart Harker, BEPI Managing Director, highlighted environmental performance in this sector, “For many companies in the textile sector managing producer environmental performance of area such as chemicals, water use and wastewater is a real challenge. This introduction session demonstrated how BEPI provides an environmental management framework for textile companies, and also how producer are supported on-site.”
The next Introduction Session in this series on the 18th March will cover Food and Homeware. To register for the webinar, or to attend in person, please use the registration form found here.
