Leading third-party certifier SCS Global Services has been approved by Textile Exchange as a licensed certification body for the Responsible Wool Standard. SCS is now authorised to conduct independent certification assessments of wool production under 'Farm Scope' of the standard. SCS is also in the licensing process for 'Processing Scope' of the standard.

"We are pleased to be an approved licensed certification body and to be able to participate in this landmark sustainability initiative," said Nicole Munoz, SCS managing director."SCS has a long track record of experience in environmental sustainability certification. We are excited to bring this expertise to the table to further the efforts of this collaboration and partnership with farmers, manufacturers, brands and retailers."

Textile Exchange is a multi-stakeholder industry group whose members are located in eight countries and represent all stages of the textile value cycle. The Responsible Wool Standard was developed with broad stakeholder input, including farmers, animal welfare groups and apparel brands. It provides the textile industry with a tool to ensure that wool comes from farms with sustainable land management practices, and from sheep that have been treated responsibly. The final standard was released in June 2016 after two years of development and pilot audits conducted worldwide.

SCS provides third-party certification under a variety of internationally sustainable agriculture labels, including SCS Sustainably Grown, Veriflora, Better Cotton Initiative, Fair Trade USA, the Equitable Farm Initiative’s 'Responsibly Grown / Farmworker Assured', the Roundtable for Sustainable Biomaterials, and more. In addition, it provides independent auditing oversight for the sustainability supply chain programmes of several international consumer brands. Its' worldwide network of auditors perform assessments for large, medium, and small farms, as well as farm groups. (RR)
