Textile Exchange on new & focused path

Jan '16
In its latest newsletter, Textile Exchange said it is on a new and focused path to bring value to the global textile industry.

“Our goals are still the same, our mission still very purpose driven, i.e. creating material change in the industry, building tools and resources to transform our industry to a safer and healthier one,” it added.

Its work is now centered on three platforms of core activities: Fibres & Materials, Integrity & Standards, and Supply Network.

Textile Exchange has dedicated teams in each area building knowledge, tools, resources and capabilities to provide members and the industry with actionable how-to solutions to accomplish their sustainability strategies.

It offers a deep dive into organic cotton with its annual Organic Cotton Market Report, a summary material snapshot of mechanically recycled polyester or a range of material standards like the OCS, GRS and RDS.

Textile Exchange will also be launching its new website by the end of the month, with support of Esquel Group and Lenzing.

“In addition to the easier navigation and new modern look and feel, a notable improvement is the Member Only section of the site where Members login to access and easily find their member benefits,” it noted.

“We're also bringing back a blog that will allow visitors to find information on topics that interest them and to engage with TE staff and other TE members through the blog,” Textile Exchange observed.

Over time, it will continue to add-to and develop the site with new features and functionality as funds become available.

After a multi-stakeholder review over the past year, Textile Exchange also announced the release of Content Claim Standard (CCS) 2.0 and Organic Content Standard (OCS) 2.0.

The CCS is used as the chain of custody requirements for all TE standards, and therefore, changes in CCS 2.0 will affect all of its standards.

Key changes in the CCS include, exemptions for post-production certification and contract warehouses only performing logistics functions are no longer subject to on-site audits

Key changes in the OCS include; recognition of IFOAM Family of Standards, cotton gins and any other post-harvest processing must be certified to the OCS or GOTS and inclusion of GMO testing. (AR)
