Credible program structure
1. Impact Focused
By focusing on the wet processing facilities within the apparel and textile supply chains, we can make the largest impact first. This is demonstrated by our flagship Mill Improvement Program.
2. Measurable Significance
Impact significance is quantified via third party validation of both baseline and final metrics. Estimates aren’t good enough.
3. Transparent Data
Results are validated with project metrics shared via our programs database that we publish for industry collaboration to improve standards Year over Year for continuous improvement while maintaining facility confidentiality.
To ensure we make a global impact, our programs are designed to be simple, cost-effective, and repeatable.
5. Focused Programs
By focusing our program areas to address energy, water, chemistry and materials, we target addressable areas where we can maximize scalable impact, starting with facilities.
6. Capacity Building
A critical component for all of our programs is they must train facility staff beyond initial implementation. We identify programs that contribute to capacity building by training staff in the facilities, locally and nationally. This reduces the amount of international travel required to optimize sustainable and scalable results.
