Milan-based Friend of the Earth, an organisation offering global certification for products and businesses that adhere to sustainable practices, recently announced the launch of a new certification for sustainable fashion. Businesses that earn the certification must pass an audit demonstrating their commitment to using materials produced through sustainable practices, reducing waste and minimising harm to the environment.

Certified fashion businesses can use the Friend of the Earth Certified Fashion insignia on their products, a press release from the organisation said.

Fashion products and textiles earning the Friend of the Earth certification must originate from agricultural or farming products certified by the organisation. They can also come from recycled products, produced in ways that respect the environment and workers.

The certification process also involves the auditing of a company’s social and environmental management systems, legal compliance, protection of wild flora and fauna, appropriate use of hazardous substances, appropriate water resources management, output control , waste management and energy management.
