Part Two: Achieving Zero Discharge
Last year, Recycled Claim Standard 2.0 and Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 4.0 were released by Textile Exchange. As of July 2018, all sites should be compliant with the new standards. The most significant changes in the standard are: 1) how materials are verified as recycled and 2) our adoption of ZDHC’s Manufacturer’s Restricted Substance List.
This two-part series takes a deeper look at these two areas to explain how they work, and how they are driving change across the textile industry and beyond. View the archives from part one here.
Part 2 covered updates to processing criteria of GRS, MRSL, how to reach compliance, and included a Q&A.
