The four subreports will be the basis for the work to be performed in 2014 with the aim of creating a Voluntary Commitment and a Code of Conduct. The reports for 2013 are:

• Mapping of current actors in the collection, sorting, reuse and recycling of used textiles and the management of textile wastes

• Literature review of the traceability of global textile flows.

• Definition and documentation of operational and best practice standards in the collection, sorting, reuse and recycling of used textiles and management of textile wastes.
