The state of the art of the textile industry
The Green to Wear Standard of environmental sustainability is an innovative tool developed to assess the environmental performance of small and medium textile wet processes enterprises. The Green to Wear is the result of a comprehensive study carried out for a group of textile experts and, in collaboration with our supply chain in the framework of a Pilot Project. This project allowed us to identify the environmental performance indicators that are key for this type of suppliers. Furthermore, a comparative study of the evaluation tools available for the textile sector was carried out, to ascertain their accuracy as regards the requirements identified. The conclusions of this study led us to develop an environmental evaluation tool adapted to the reality and characteristics of wet-process SMEs: the Green to Wear Standard.
