Environmental Evaluation of Fabric Dyeing and Water Use for a Global Apparel Manufacturer
The apparel industry is characterized by a globally-connected supply chain of producers and suppliers, which presents challenges when dealing with the enforcement of environmental regulations. Apparel industry leaders have recognized the need for improved environmental stewardship and have moved towards more collective efforts to address the toxins that are produced as part of their manufacturing processes. This study focuses on textile dyeing, one of the largest contributors to hazardous chemicals in the apparel supply chain, as a starting point for an apparel manufacturer's environmental assessment of their product offerings.
