R-TWO technology keeps getting enriched

ISKO is a reliable partner and member of Textile Exchange since March 2019, and manages to keep the changing pulse of international conditions. The company had the chance to exhibit the R-TWO technology, which has Textile Exchange certificates for 25 thousand products, at the event. These certifications cover the Content Claim Standard, Global Recycled Standard, Organic Content Standard or Recycled Claim Standard levels;, ensuring trust and certainty in chain of custody and material sourcing.

This program reduces raw material impact and highlights its ambitious Life-cycle Assessments (LCAs) project; to develop verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPD®s) assessing the impact of all the products in its portfolio. Since its launch in 2019; ISKO has elevated and incorporated its R-TW technology in all its 25,000 products; achieving a fully green production. By using a mix of reused and recycled material, the program performs at scale with increased sustainability credentials; and is built to design waste out of the system while embedding circularity into early stages of the production processes.

ISKO Sustainability Impact Report

ISKO also presented its first Sustainability Impact Report; which sets bold targets and provides a detailed overview of the company’s work; within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and ILO standard frameworks. These were also a central theme of the conference; focusing on Science Based Target initiatives and the crucial role of embedding these into business strategy. The report provides brands and designers with clear transparency regarding the production process and information on their life cycles.
