This report provides a thorough analysis concerning the situation in Tirupur, India, where the local government has imposed strict requirements on zero liquid discharge of wastewater in textile production. The report analyzes how Tirupur can turn the Zero Liquid Discharge re-quirements into a competitive advantage by creating a green textile cluster based on the Eu-ropean Eco-label Flower and ISO 14001. The report also includes an analysis of the demand situation for environmentally certified textile in the Nordic countries and how this demand can be affected positively.

Buyers in developed countries are increasingly held responsible for unethical conditions among their suppliers in low wage countries and must accordingly focus on managing social and environmental issues within their supply chains.
