The 3rd meeting in Turkey of the international SLCP (Social & Labor Convergence Program) platform, which is formed with the participation of the world’s leading apparel brands and manufacturers, enabling audits conducted under social compliance processes to be managed through a joint platform was hosted by Yeşim Textile.
Manufacturers adopting more environmentally friendly and sustainable production in the recent years, aim at reducing costs by consolidating social audits performed for certification of production on a single platform. International textile and apparel brands and their suppliers have joined forces under the roof of the SLCP (Social & Labor Convergence Program) with a view to reducing costs and using resources more efficiently. Domiciled in the Netherlands, the “SLCP” Platform has set off to join the forces of global brands such as Inditex, H&M, Nike, which procure goods from Turkey in large amounts, many suppliers of the textile and apparel value chain as well as audit firms and industry specific institutions under a single roof. The platform aims at improving labor conditions in global supply chains by eliminating multiple social compliance requirements through joint audits.
The SLCP Platform holds introductory meetings in various countries to brief the brands and suppliers on the operations of the platform. The platform, with which Yeşim Textile was involved since its formation stage, represented by its Human Resources and Social Compliance Director Fatoş Hüseyinca in the executive committee thereof, has organized an introductory meeting in İstanbul on the 23rd of September, in İzmir on the 25th of September and in Bursa on the 27th of September. Yeşim Textile hosted the meeting in Bursa which was held in Yeşim Academy.
