75 businesses and representative organizations, including G-Star Raw and the Foreign Trade Association (FTA) discussed progress on the AGT, a Dutch agreement on sustainable garments and textiles. At the meeting, the Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands (SER) published the first aggregated list of  signatories’ production locations.

Signed last year, the AGT fosters better supply chain practices in the greater global garment industry. AGT’s development process was facilitated by the SER and is the first in a series of agreements that aim to improve the sustainability of global garment supply chains. Representing more than one third of the Dutch market’s revenue ($3.9 billion), participants aim to have at least 50 percent of the Dutch garment sector pledge to agreement by next year and 80 percent by 2020.
