Supply chain transparency

 

We believe that transparency is a basis for sustainable action. Transparency enables us to show that we take responsibility. Through transparency, we give consumers the strength to act consciously and make sustainable consumption decisions.
Over the past few years, Lisa Jaspers from Folkdays Berlin has fought for a law on corporate due diligence with her petition #fairbylaw. On November 27, 2019, the petition for a legal regulation of supply chain transparency was officially handed over to the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (BMAS). The Federal Development Ministry, together with the Federal Ministry of Labor and the Federal Ministry of Economics, agreed on a draft for a supply chain law in February 2021. The draft law was passed by the federal cabinet on March 3rd.

AN ACCIDENT FINALLY STARTED THE MOVEMENT FOR A SUPPLY CHAIN LAW

 

The #fairbylaw initiative draws on the dramatic example of the Rana Plaza disaster to justify the need for a comprehensive supply chain law. On April 24, 2013, the dilapidated Rana Plaza textile factory in Bangladesh collapsed. Over 1,100 workers died and over 2,000 others were injured. The current draft law changes too little in the economic and political framework that prevents such tragedies from recurring. The main criticism of the present draft of the Supply Chain Law comprises four points:
1. The entire supply chain must be included, as many human rights abuses occur at the beginning of the supply chain.
2. There is no explicit civil liability rule with priority of application. Anyone who is affected by damage caused by breaches of the duty of care by companies abroad must be able to sue in German courts.
3. No limitation of environmental due diligence in the draft law. Protection gaps for the environment, human rights, climate and biodiversity must be closed.
4. The law should therefore apply to all companies operating in Germany and should not exclude any companies based on the criterion of employee size.

INASKA TAKES ONE STEP AHEAD

 

We are big supporters of a supply chain law and are happy that there will be a political solution (albeit with major flaws) that will hold all (fashion) companies accountable. But we believe that it is much more important to take responsibility yourself and to do better.
“We want to be able to tell our children later that we have understood and acted. That we have motivated people to treat each other and the environment well. “(Elisa and Franziska, CEOs INASKA)
In recent years we have been constantly asking ourselves how we can visualize our supply chain and thus make it transparent for everyone? For us as a company, to discover opportunities for improvement and to work on ourselves. And for our customers, in order to give them greater capacity to act. Conscious consumer decisions can only be made through transparency. If we as a company take responsibility – responsibility for all people who are involved in our production process and responsibility for our environment and the climate and document this seamlessly, then we can enter into a dialogue on equal terms with our consumers. We also want to ask ourselves unpleasant questions; we owe that to our customers and to ourselves as a sustainable company.

Retraced, OUR SOLUTION FOR SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSPARENCY

 

With Retraced we have found a software partner who enables us to visualize our supply chain in a completely transparent manner. Retraced is a Düsseldorf blockchain start-up that was founded in October 2018 by friends Philipp, Lukas and Peter. A good year later, they won the German Sustainability Award for Digitization. In 2020 Retraced was able to win over 40 fashion companies (including Armedangels and ErlichTextil).
And now INASKA is also RETRACEABLE. So traceable.
For each of our products, we show the origin, manufacturer and production conditions on our website, from rubber to sewing thread. In this way, we enable our customers to see our entire manufacturing process at a glance and, of course, to dive into the depths. Each individual component is recorded and, of course, given a certificate.

PODCAST FAIRNETZT #2: WHY TRANSPARENET SUPPLY CHAINS ARE IMPORTANT

 

Thanks to Retraced, we were able to take an important step that we would like all companies to take, so that in the best case scenario there would be no need for a law on corporate due diligence. To show your own supply chain transparently from start to finish and to question and adapt yourself and your own actions. If the German fashion market were to take full responsibility for people and the environment, no company would have to fear in a better world that it would be held liable for environmental and human rights violations – #payyourworkers & #safetheplanet You can also find out our thoughts on this in our PODCAST FAIRNETZT # 2: About the opportunities and weaknesses of the new supply chain law! with Mareike and Bella (German only).
