As environmental awareness has evolved, more and more initiatives have turned their attention to the textile industry as one of the most polluting on the planet. Every year new data, measures and projections of its impact appear, allowing us to better understand the problem we face.
In sustainability departments, highly impactful and responsible decisions are being made. If you are part of one of those departments, you know that in order to make good decisions and choose the best initiatives to solve the problem, it is important to have relevant information.
In this article, which we will update periodically, you will find some of the most relevant studies of the moment. These studies provide information on different aspects of the industry ranging from the carbon footprint of clothing, to the use of natural resources, water pollution, impact on biodiversity, and labor exploitation in the textile industry, among other things.
Here are some of the most relevant studies developed up to 2023:
- FASHION INDUSTRY CHARTER FOR CLIMATE ACTION PROGRESS REPORT 2023 (UNITED NATIONS) March 27, 2023
- Fashion on climate: How the fashion industry can urgently act to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions (McKinsey) 2020
If you work to reduce the environmental impact in the textile industry and need more information on how to measure, reduce, and compensate for your textile footprint, you will find all the information in our White Paper, or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
