In close cooperation with gsm - global sustainable management in Cologne 3p Institute started a program concerning process ecology in the textile sector in Bangladesh. gsm offers holistic and sustainable solutions for assurance of corporate specific requirements in the areas of CSR, environment, quality and legal compliance. The service portfolio contains ranking systems for evalutation of supplier performance, product conformity and processes within the supply chain. Ecological aspects gain more and more importance also and especially in regard of REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals), an European designation becoming obligatory within the next years. This program will be trend-setting within compliance activities.
