HAVE YOUR SAY on the future of green textiles!

Global GreenTag is inviting all sustainability-focused industry stakeholders (especially manufacturers) for a public consultation on our Product Category Rules (PCR) for Textile products, closing on 30 September 2022!

The Global GreenTag EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) Program is seeking your input into development of Product Category Rules for Textile products, which are being produced in collaboration with The Evah Institute, and inviting you to comment.

Consumers and business customers alike seek reliable quantitative data about environmental burden of products. This helps them to make purchasing decisions that account for such burdens. Decision-making is now supported by initiatives, including Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).

An EPD is a user-friendly representation of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) results. To ensure that EPDs provide reliable and comparable information, every EPD is underpinned by relevant Product Category Rules (PCR). PCR is defined in ISO 14025 as a set of specific rules, requirements and guidelines, to develop environmental declarations for one or more products that can fulfil equivalent functions. PCRs determine what information should be gathered, how that information should be evaluated, and how it should be presented in a form of an environmental declaration.

Manufacturers' input into development of PCRs is immensely important, as it allows to tailor PCRs for the conforming LCAs to reflect typical material sourcing, adopted manufacturing processes and common use phase issues, and for EPDs – to represent all important information about the products in accessible way.

The public consultation period closes on 30 September 2022, the draft PCR for Textile products is accessible HERE.
