NTA seeks comments on Voluntary Product Environmental Profile
02
Jun '09
Since October 2008 a working group, made up of dyestuff and chemical suppliers, textile manufacturers, and professional staff of academic institutions and trade associations of the chemical, dyestuffs, and textile industries, convened by the National Textile Association, has been developing a standard format, known as Voluntary Product Environmental Profile (VPEP) to facilitate efficient exchange of data between textile companies and their suppliers of information needed to make informed decisions regarding the environmental impact of textile products and processes.

Use of the reporting format is strictly voluntary, and will be made available in paper form free of charge to industry. The group also intends to develop an electronic database product incorporating the information gathered in the paper form.

The paper form is available in draft form for wider industry evaluation. The VPEP in paper form as a PDF is available along with Instructions on the NTA website. Comments and suggestions for improvement to David Trumbull by July 15, 2009. A final version will be published later this year in both paper and electronic versions.
