Abstract (Swedish)
Uppsatsen redogör för lagstiftningen gällande kemikalier i textilier och vari den brister. Företagens möjligheter att påverka utvecklingen mot ett hållbart företagande och ökad miljöhänsyn sker delvis genom rättslig reglering. I uppsatsen konstateras emellertid att allt fler företag väljer att ta ett mer långtgående ansvar utöver vad lagen kräver. Varför företagen väljer att ta ett mer långtgående ansvar kan härledas till marknadsmässiga drivkrafter såsom att stå sig i konkurrensen gentemot andra företag, företagens möjligheter att stärka sitt varumärke samt konsumenters allt större medvetenhet kring miljö och kemikalier påverkar företagen att agera hållbart.
Abstract
The essay describes the legislation on chemicals in textiles and where the legislation is unsuccessful. Companies’ ability to influence the development of a sustainable business and increasing environmental concern is achieved through legal regulation, however more and more companies choose to take a more far reaching responsibility beyond what the law requires. Why companies choose to take a more responsibility can be attributed to market forces such as staying competitive against other companies, the opportunities for companies to strengthen their brand and consumers' increasing awareness of the environment and a demand for sustainable products.
