Through our experience and expertise, as well as our partnerships with various NGOs and organisations, MADE-BY develops tools that are relevant and effective for brands and suppliers in becoming more sustainable and that respond to gaps and needs in the market.. The sustainability agenda is continuously growing and at MADE-BY we believe working together in pushing this agenda by sharing industry knowledge is key.. Wet processing refers to the textile process where products are pre-treated, dyed, printed and finished through a liquid-based process.. During these treatments, large quantities of water, energy and (hazardous) chemicals are consumed..

In addition, many variable factors at a supply chain level are involved, such as machine type and settings, making it an extremely complex field.. Nevertheless there  ...   chains in the area of water, energy and chemicals use.. Therefore this tool has been developed as an objective guide, providing a practical and comparative overview that enables brands to determine which standard(s) are most applicable in their supply chains..

The fashion industry is becoming more and more aware of the need to improve environmental conditions in the garment supply chain, but the way forward is unclear..
