AII, US Clean by Design to conserve water in Chinese mills
03
Feb '18
In collaboration with Clean by Design, a programme under the US Natural Resources Defence Council, the new Apparel Impact Institute (AII) is reaching out to apply the programme’s tested approach to a new set of mills in China. This move is seen as a crucial step in conserving water in apparel manufacturing, identified as a key sustainability concern.

AII was launched in October last year by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, the Sustainable Trade Initiative, Target, PVH, Gap and others to galvanise around collective action in the apparel and footwear industry and work with brands and manufacturers to select, fund, and scale projects that improve the sustainability impact of the sector.

AII will apply tried and tested approaches to hundreds of mills in China under the Scaling Mills Impact initiative with an explicit focus on water conservation apart from fuel use reduction and lower electricity consumption, according to a report on a website dedicated to news related to sustainable trade.

In its first roll-out in 2014, participating mills in the Clean by Design program conserved up to 36 per cent water, reduced energy use by 22 per cent and removed 400 tonnes of chemicals from their production process, saving an average of nearly $500,000. (DS)
