The Impact of Wet Processing

The scope of wet processing is broad and complex; spanning multiple tiers of the supply chain and covering processes from pre-treatment through to dyeing, printing and finishing. The environmental footprint of wet processing is enormous as each stage consumes significant amounts of water, energy and (hazardous) chemicals. Fortunately, the opportunities for improvement are equally enormous– and in some cases quite exciting and innovative.

We offer wet processing guidance for both brands and suppliers. To learn more about how to develop and implement improvement strategies, see the MADE-BY Detox Consultancy Package.
