Olivia Pinnock of Forbes reports on new fashion sustainability metrics.

The C3 Take
  • Textile Exchange, a nonprofit that is helping close to 300 fashion brands bring sustainability forward, has found that 50% of the materials that are being used to create apparel are either organic, recycled, or from sustainable sources.
  • 68% of companies also reported that they were pursuing a circular business model, although only 30% provided quantitative data to back that claim up.
  • Private sector leadership is creating a cleaner energy future.

“The figures, released today, show 50% of materials being used by the 292 participating companies are now organic, recycled or other lower impact options, compared with 44% in 2020.”
