How does the Materials Matter Standard differ from Textile Exchange’s Preferred Fiber and Materials Matrix (PFMM)?

The PFMM is a tool that assesses different standards across the industry, including those owned by Textile Exchange as well as standards owned by peer organizations. The PFMM helps inform areas in the Materials Matter Standard just as other tools and information have informed its development. The PFMM will not apply as specific criteria in the Materials Matter Standard; the standard and PFMM will co-exist as separate tools managed within the organization.
