Code of conduct for management of used textiles

This code of conduct is part of a voluntary commitment signed by actors in the textile value chain. It provides rules and guidelines for securing a sustainable and responsible collection, sorting, reuse and recycling of used textiles. It is aimed at any organisation performing collection, sorting, reuse and recycling of used textiles. All criteria that are checked in an audit are marked with (Cx.x) to allow for a clear connection between an audit result and the criteria in the code of conduct.
