Isko has released its first Sustainability Impact report. The report speaks about accountability, responsibility, and sustainability. In line with consumers’ demands of transparency, this detailed overview of Isko’s work shares what has been done and continues to be done within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and ILO standard frameworks.

The Sustainability Impact report provides in-depth information in relation to different targets across the supply chain, such as the management of environmental impacts, the oversight of supply chain processes, the use of raw materials, the achievements in research and innovation, the advocating for labour rights and freedom of association, the implementation of better health and safety standards. It serves as a tool for brands and designers, supporting every aspect of their collections’ responsible development, the company said in a media statement.

A part of the report is dedicated to EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations). They provide quantifiable impacts evaluations, from water use, to carbon footprint and air pollution from the cotton fields to the customer. Isko was the first manufacturer worldwide to obtain independently verified EPDs for all of its more than 25,000 denim products, ensuring the replicability and validity of their Life-Cycle Assessments (LCAs) and enabling a one-to-one comparison among different products and fabrics. They provide a clear, detailed and easily understandable picture of the impact of the choices made when designing or purchasing a garment.

All data included in the report has been assured by Control Union Certifications, a third-party auditing body working to provide tailored options for supply chains that require sustainable sourcing solutions. It is also aligned to the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) methodology. By being open on its measuring methods, Isko is effectively supporting improvement across the board whilst enabling like-for-like comparisons of performance.

“Our goal is to create fabrics that perform exceptionally and last longer whilst using fewer resources. We work hard every day to improve ourselves, to be better and do better – this is what Responsible Innovation means to us: never settle, but always strive for improvement,” Ebru Ozkucuk Guler, senior sustainability and CSR executive at Isko said.
