OEKO-TEX® Introduces New Carbon and Water Footprint Tool to Accelerate the Textile Industry’s Transition to Sustainability
The textile industry is increasingly taking climate change seriously. Already over 100 brands and retailers have signed the UN Fashion Charter for Climate Action committing to a target of 30% GHG emission reductions by 2030. Also, water usage impacts are a big issue that requires more attention, according to CDP. To achieve these goals, the industry needs to overcome two big challenges: data availability and production facility-level action.
STeP by OEKO-TEX® is helping address these challenges by launching a Carbon and Water Footprint Tool tailored to textile production facilities. Now production facilities have a simple, user-friendly digital tool that provides initial insights into how much and where their carbon emissions and water usage impacts are.
