New England debuts Sustainability Accreditation Scheme

New England Wool said it has launched its very own Sustainability Accreditation Scheme for Australian wool growers.

The scheme, called The New England Wool ‘SustainaWool Integrity Scheme’ is designed for use by current and future suppliers of wool to New England Wool.

New England Wool represents two high profile fabric makers in the Biella Region of Italy, Reda and Vitale Barberis Canonico.

New England Wool is also the world’s largest purchaser of the highest quality spinner style superfine wools.

MD Andrew Blanch said, “New England Wool, in conjunction with its Italian shareholders wants the wool-consuming-world to understand that its wool producers take the utmost care with their animals and the environment.

“Not enough focus or energy has been placed on promoting the sustainable nature of the wool production system in Australia, particularly high quality superfine wool production systems,” Blanch noted.

He added, “The wool consumer is increasingly demanding a higher level of traceability along the pipeline of the production system from which they buy.

“Not only does the product need to be of the highest quality, there also needs to be a compelling story behind the product clearly showing the highest level of environmental and social sustainability and animal welfare.”

New England Wool said it understands that it has a major role in promoting the highly professional and ethical wool production systems of its suppliers.

It also has the important role of advising potential suppliers of areas that could be improved or enhanced in certain production systems.

“The SustainaWool Integrity Scheme is a tool which we want to share with our valued suppliers to help us work and grow together in an increasingly competitive landscape,” Blanch observed.

New England Wool also added that it wants its suppliers to stand out from the crowd, in the very best way and wants suppliers to grow and prepare the highest quality wool with the highest quality production credentials.

The SustainaWool Integrity Scheme is available to all suppliers of wool to New England Wool.

The information provided via the SustainaWool documentation by each wool supplier will be forever linked with the wool produced from that particular property.

The SustainaWool Integrity Scheme Grower Checklist is a self-assessment document, but each declarant signs with the full understanding and knowledge that they can be subject to audit at any time. (AR)
