Bangladesh Denim Expo (BDE) plans to adopt Kingpins’ standards starting with its upcoming show from November 05-06, 2020.
This year Kingpins Amsterdam, the bi-annual denim supply chain trade show, began the process of requiring all exhibiting denim mills to meet or exceed standards in areas of corporate social responsibility (CSR), environment and chemical usage.
Kingpins believes that the adoption of a clear and unified approach on sustainable chemical management in the denim supply chain will reduce complexity, increase transparency, improve communication and ultimately lower costs – both in certification and in evaluation tests of chemical substances. To this end, Kingpins Show is collaborating with The ZDHC Foundation to develop the show’s sustainability protocol.
Now, Bangladesh Denim Expo has announced that it too will be requiring denim mills exhibiting at its shows to meet or exceed standards in the areas of corporate social responsibility (CSR), environment and chemical usage. BDE will use Kingpins Show’s CSR and chemical responsibility standards as a template for its exhibitor requirements.
