Showcasing sustainability, an English version of Vastuun kantajat, a collection of sustainability stories from twelve Finnish textile and fashion companies, was published at the end of November last year. The Finnish original was published in a breakfast seminar in Helsinki in June 2015. The book is published by the Finnish Textile & Fashion, the federation of Finnish textile and clothing companies, and stories are collected, written and edited by CSR consultant Sari Kuvaja.
The twelve cases come from the following companies: Agtuvi Ky, Dafecor Oy, Finlayson Oy, Joutsen Finland, L-Fashion Group, Marimekko Oyj, Nanso, Oy Fiblon Ab, Pure Waste Textiles, Reima Oy, Suominen Oyj, VM-Carpet Oy.
This publication looks at corporate responsibility from the perspectives of management, product design and reusing. Apart from issues related to responsible supply chains, the publication discusses themes which have drawn less attention in the public: engaging employees, lojality in subcontractor relations as well as attempts to reduce material spoilage in the production processes.
