Apparel and Textile Certification Services



As the world moves towards a more sustainable future, the apparel and textiles industry has a key role to play. To meet the growing customer demand for more sustainable products, companies can leverage brand and product certifications across a host of standards and drive sustainable performance.

Aligning with a certification system can lead to a variety of organisational benefits, including environmental performance improvements (such as reduced water use, less chemicals, better recycling), more socially responsible behaviours (such as safer working conditions), as well as improving the traceability and transparency of your supply chains.
