Sustainable Textile Coalition leads industry toward sustainability

June 1st, 2013 / By: / Industry News, Markets, Sustainability

In February 2013, a group of leading home textile retailers and manufacturers (including Target and Williams-Sonoma) launched the Sustainable Textile Coalition, an initiative to lead the industry toward greater sustainability. The mission is to build a shared vision of sustainability and a common approach for measuring and evaluating textile product sustainability performance. The Sustainable Apparel Coalition has developed the Higgs Index, which measures sustainability for apparel and footwear. The new Sustainable Textile Coalition will build on this work, finding ways to assess sustainability across the textiles value chain and focusing on priorities for action and technological innovation.
