Product integrity is the linchpin of sustainability in the textile industry. Though it is the most effective and transparent method of embedding integrity, the thought of complete certification may seem overwhelming. But it doesn't have to be.
The Industry Integrity Team at Textile Exchange put together the Certification Toolkit as a guide to smoothing out the path to product certification. Taking into special consideration the needs of brands and manufacturers, the guide will be useful as the first step in understanding how certification works and identifying the actions for your company to begin certifying your products. For those who have already begun to use product certification, the Certification Toolkit will provide answers to implementation issues, reading certificates, and additional technical issues.
A condensed version of the full Certification Toolkit, available for free to everyone.
The full version is available as a benefit at no extra charge for members of Textile Exchange or may be purchased by non-members for $250. Textile Exchange membership is a great way to gain access to wide variety of reports at a reduced cost, for more information about membership, visit http://textileexchange.org/membership.
