Textile Exchange is a global nonprofit that creates leaders in the preferred fiber and materials industry. We build a community that can collectively accomplish what no individual or company can do alone. We develop, manage, and promote a suite of leading industry standards, as well as collect and publish critical industry data and insights that enable brands and retailers to measure, manage and track the use of preferred fiber and materials.
With a robust membership representing leading brands, retailers, and suppliers, Textile Exchange is positively impacting climate through accelerating the use of preferred fibers across the global textile industry.
As of October 2022, the entire econscious supply chain will be SEDEX members with current SMETA audits on file. SMETA is Sedex’s social auditing methodology, enabling businesses to assess their sites and suppliers to understand working conditions in their supply chain.
Sedex’s vision is to drive organisations globally to improve the lives of the people they impact. Today, Sedex and our members impact the lives of 33 million people globally.
The econscious headquarters are powered by 100% local renewable EverGreen electricity .
What makes EverGreen so special?
EverGreen power sources are generated entirely in Sonoma and Mendocino counties.
By tapping solar by day and geothermal by night, this 100% renewable option doesn’t need to be backed up by dirty power such as natural gas.
By helping build new local sources, EverGreen customers are supporting the local economy, creating jobs, and promoting efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
