How is Textile Exchange working to fill data gaps within its own standards system?
1. For our own standards, we are developing LCA studies for Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) Wool and Responsible Mohair Standard (RMS) Mohair. As above, we’re aiming for country-level results for these studies and will be sharing the results publicly.
2. In 2021, we began the process of transitioning to a unified standards system. While our standards are currently focused on practice-based requirements, this process will see us move to a hybrid approach that combines traditional, practice-based requirements with key Climate+ outcomes. We will use impact data to monitor progress over time, and the model for monitoring and evaluating the impacts of those standards is in progress. You can find out more about our unified standard system, the development timeline, and the opportunities for public consultation, on our website.
