A MADE-BY Guide to Textile Wet Processing Standards
Why did MADE-BY develop this tool?
Driven by a commitment to sustainability, our overall mission is to make sustainable fashion common practice. Through our experience and expertise, as well as our partnerships with various NGOs and organisations, MADE-BY develops tools that are relevant and effective for brands and suppliers in becoming more sustainable and that respond to gaps and needs in the market. The sustainability agenda is continuously growing and at MADE-BY we believe working together in pushing this agenda by sharing industry knowledge is key.
There is a multitude of standards and systems available in the market but it is unclear for most fashion companies what the differences between them are and how they can be used to make improvements in their wet processing supply chains in the area of water, energy and chemicals use. Therefore this tool has been developed as an objective guide, providing a practical and comparative overview that enables brands to determine which standard(s) are most applicable in their supply chains. The guide has been developed in collaboration with the managing bodies themselves and we will maintain the tool as updates are provided.
