How is Textile Exchange approaching recognition of materials certified under another scheme? 

We are developing a framework for recognition partnerships with peer organizations designed to capture new raw materials as well as overlapping impact criteria areas such as human rights & livelihoods or chemical management. The framework is built to collaborate with organizations that own and manage sustainability systems and standards (or other means of verification), as a collective partnership toward the Climate+ goal and in an effort to reduce duplication of audit processes for similar scopes. Development of the recognition concept is a significant body of work that will continue into 2024, particularly around building partnerships with peer organizations and pilot testing the options.
