Control Union, a founding member of Textile Exchange, has given five new standards to Textile Exchange for future growth and industry transformation, with a grant to support the initial review. Control Union is a strong promoter of the third-party assessment system, namely policy making, certification and accreditation organised by different parties.

In 2011 Control Union gifted to Textile Exchange the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) and Recycled Content Standard (RCS) which now serve over 1,875 sites. These standards were developed by Control Union due to market demand and the ability to promote best practices within the community. These standards,  Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), Sustainable Fiber Initiative, rTRIM Responsible Trim, Non-GMO Production standard and the Vegan Standard, will broaden and strengthen Textile Exchange’s existing suite of standards, which includes: Organic Cotton Standard (OCS); Responsible Wool Standard (RWS), Responsible Down Standard (RDS) and Global Recycled Standard (GRS).

The five gifted standards were developed by Control Union due to market demand and the ability to promote best practices within the community. If taken over into Textile Exchange’s portfolio as per the Board’s approval, these standards would broaden and strengthen Textile Exchange’s existing suite of standards

Textile Exchange, a member of ISEAL, is looking for thought partnership to help determine the organisation’s role in each standard’s future. Each standard will be assessed separately with the engagement of appropriate content representatives. A recommendation for each standard will be reviewed by the Textile Exchange governance board.?The five gifted standards are in different stages of their lifecycle. (RR)
