Why is Textile Exchange moving towards a unified standards system? 

Harmonizing our input standards across all fibers and materials brings the benefits of efficiency to all stakeholders. This includes certified sites that may hold more than one certificate, certification bodies and auditors who need to study each standard, and for Textile Exchange staff managing the standards. The timeline is also synced with the opportunity to embed our key impact areas, including those related to our Climate+ goal, into the future unified standard system.
