What is intex all about?

The UNEP is implementing a three-year project funded by the European Union (EU): Innovative Business Practices and Economic Models in the Textile Value Chain (InTex). The project has five components, two of which have a global
element, while three focus on national implementation in three African countries where textile is a key economic sector: Kenya, South Africa, and Tunisia. These countries have companies, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which are part of multinational value chains (e.g. exporting to the European market). The technical intermediaries from the three countries are UNEP’s partners implementing three components that have a national focus. In South Africa, the two intermediaries are the Centre for African Resource Efficiency and Sustainability (CARES) and the National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA).
