Isko first denim manufacturer to get EPD for products

Mar '18
Isko has become the 1st denim manufacturer to get Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for its products, grouped into 9 categories. The results of the industry's 1st EPDs will be used to create the Product Category Rules (PCR) for future denim industry EPDs. It is a document to share verified and transparent information about the life-cycle of products.

The PCR is due to be published in November 2018 paving the way for consistent and comparable assessments of denim across the industry, increasing transparency of environmental impact, improving consumer awareness and driving environmental improvement, Isko press release said.

In order to fully understand the impacts involved in the textile supply chain, Isko has worked to obtain Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) of all of its 25,000+ denim products, in line with ISO 14040 and ISO 14044. To ensure the validity of the LCAs, publicly available and independently verified EPDs have been produced by Isko, in line with ISO 14025. (RR)
