Fashion sustainability labeling

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1448″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Claiming the sustainability of the fabrics not only helps companies to promote sustainability, but also helps consumers select the product they are buying based on quality criteria and from a socially and environmentally responsible perspective.

Today’s consumers are very aware of sustainability and how it affects each component of the garment they wear. The reduction of waste during manufacture, the use of environmentally friendly raw materials and the restriction of chemical substances are only some of the concerns that are increasingly appreciated both in society and in the textile industry itself.

In this sense, there are different international regulations and certifications, such as the Fair Trade label, which validates compliance with labor and environmental standards; the European Ecolabel, which focuses on the environmental effects of a product throughout its life cycle, from raw materials, manufacture, distribution, use and disposal; the  RSC standard, on the chain of custody of recycled raw materials along the supply chain, the  GRS standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, environmental practices and chemical restrictions; or the GOTS standard that focuses on the organic character of textiles from the raw material to the final product including also social criteria.

In Sigillum Knowledge Solutions we advise you on the approach of these regulations to achieve a safe and sustainable product, with the competitive advantages that this entails.
