Advanced Chemical Management Training

10-month continuous training
with group workshops and factory visits
for textile wet processing units


Systain and the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles offer a chemical management training for textile wet processing units. The Advanced Chemical Management Training was developed to continuously support factories in the improvement of their existing management systems with a hands-on approach.

In cooperation with


  • Sustainable chemical management
  • Improved chemical input
  • Raising awareness for substitution


  • Interactive group workshops
  • Factory visits
  • Systematic development of management action plans (MAP)

The Advanced Chemical Management Training was developed to promote long-term improvement of chemical management by raising awareness and providing hands-on knowledge to the factories on how to improve existing management systems. Transparency, clear communication and engagement will be created throughout the whole supply chain. Core topics during the training are quality insurance of the chemicals used, wastewater and mud treatment, as well as substitution.

Through a period of 10 months the factories receive continuous visits on-site, interactive group workshops, and supporting documents. The participants individually learn to control and ensure the safe handling of chemicals from purchasing until disposal. Additionally, the trainer identifies specific hot spots during the on-site visits which are addressed in the management action plan.



Through continuous training and reporting you gain insights on the knowledge of your suppliers in regards to chemical management, and are also able to monitor their improvements in that regards. For additional information on the content and scope of the program, please visit the website of the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles.

The training is coordinated by Systain and conducted by selected highly qualified local trainers. The regions in which the training is taking place are selected based on the nominations of factories. Costs for the training program will be calculated per factory and may vary depending on the location and trainer.
