Das Lieferkettengesetz in Deutschland und seine Auswirkungen auf den Textileinzelhandel

The German Supply Chain Act And its impact on textile retail

  • The paper deals with the German Supply Chain Act ("Lieferkettengesetz") and the impact it will have on the retail sector - in particular the textile industry. To illustrate this development, the historical predecessors are first discussed, which are decisive for the further development of national plans and legislation. Other national legislations are also discussed, which have the same goal of a sustainable, decent working situation and the protection of the environment. Since the German law was passed only a few months ago, statements on its effectiveness as well as on possible problems associated with it can only be made with extreme caution, but a comparison is nevertheless possible to a certain extent and the voluntary commitments that existed previously are also included in further consideration. It can be seen that the Supply Chain Act is not without criticism, and in this context, numerous problems are attested, as is already the case with the international equivalents, which have already been in existence for a few years. The paper examines these connections and concludes that the Supply Chain Act is an important decision in the right direction to ensure humane conditions along the entire supply chain and to consistently prosecute human rights violations. However, this will require an enormous effort by companies at the current time. Nonetheless, these efforts must be made and it seems that this is also where future competitive advantages can be gained. It remains to be seen what resistance the Supply Chain Act will still have to face before it is seen as an established standard for German companies and is implemented consistently.
