Anvil Knitwear announced the results of its greenhouse gas (GHG) life cycle assessment (LCA) for its AnvilSustainable t-shirt, which is made from recycled PET plastic bottles and transitional cotton, grown on farms making the switch to organic processes.

The analysis of the AnvilSustainable tee, which encompassed a cradle-to-grave approach, found the footprint to be 3.29 kgCO(2)e/tee.

The AnvilSustainable analysis is the fourth in a series of LCAs completed by Anvil in collaboration with Camco International, a global developer of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and clean energy projects with a presence in more than 20 countries. In addition to the AnvilSustainable tee, Anvil has completed comparative product life cycle assessments of the company's Anvil Basic, AnvilOrganic and AnvilRecycled cotton t-shirts.

"At Anvil, one of our top priorities is ensuring that our products are made using the most earth-friendly processes we know," said Anvil Knitwear CEO, Anthony Corsano. "The completion of our fourth LCA is further evidence of this promise to our customers and of our larger commitment to environmental stewardship and transparency."

The AnvilSustainable tee has a 15 percent lower footprint than Anvil's conventional cotton tee with each tee saving approximately 3 plastic bottles from going into a landfill.

The assessment was conducted utilizing the new global framework that is part of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative. Developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the two new GHG Protocol standards – the Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard and the Scope 3 (Corporate Value Chain) Accounting and Reporting Standard – provide methods to account for emissions associated with individual products across their life-cycles and of corporations across their entire supply chains.
