The videos can be accessed on Control Union’s online learning platform, along with a range of other free and paid videos providing insightful content for those seeking certifications in a wide range of industries.

Through these videos, we are committed to providing those businesses with the knowledge and tools necessary to navigate the complex landscape of textile certifications.”

We hope these new textiles videos will provide a valuable introduction for businesses considering certification, empowering them to make informed decisions and take the first step towards certification, driving positive change in the textile industry.
