Sustainable Chemistry For The Textile Industry’s Alliance Establishment


Osborne Clarke advised the new alliance Sustainable Chemistry for the Textile Industry on its establishment in October 2020.

Launched in October 2020, Sustainable Chemistry for the Textile Industry (SCTI) is an alliance of leading chemical companies that strives to empower the textile and leather industries to apply sustainable, state-of-the-art chemistry solutions that protect factory workers, local communities, consumers and the environment. It has seven founding members: Archroma, CHT Group, Huntsman, Kyung-In Synthetic Corporation (KISCO), Pulcra Chemicals, Rudolf Group and Tanatex Chemicals.

The ultimate aim for SCTI is to help the industry produce more sustainable textile and leather end products for consumers through cleaner and more transparent supply chains that use less water and energy and produce less emissions and pollution.

The Osborne Clarke team which advised SCTI on this high profile project was led by Dr. Fabian Christoph (Picture – Corporate), and consisted of Dr. Sebastian Hack and Marco Aatz (both Antitrust).
