Elevating a global industry
The apparel industry has changed significantly over the last two decades. Fast fashion produced in emerging economies has become the new norm, as well as long, complex supply chains. This growth has come with increased scrutiny, and consumers increasingly put the social, environmental and circular performance of the sector under a magnifying glass.
Sustainability-focused apparel companies and industry initiatives are tackling a variety of problems: social impacts such as child labor and safety, circularity issues regarding reuse, recyclability and lifetime extension, environmental impacts such as carbon emission and water use, and use of chemicals.
Rely on our proven expertise in apparel sustainability
At PRé, we have worked with leading industry organizations to bring the facts about the various impacts of their products to the surface. For the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, we developed tools to provide their members with insights in the environmental impact of materials and products. With Nike, we calculated the environmental and circular impact of Flyleather, an innovative material that helps them to make their footwear more sustainable. And for Fristads, PRé took part in a product category rules panel. And there are many more ways we support companies trying to build a more sustainable apparel industry – to create value through sustainable innovations, make supply chains transparent and enhance their reputation as a sustainable leader.
