Amazon revamps international site for overseas Indian consumers

The textile processing industry is heavily dependent on water in virtually all steps of the production process, from desizing to bleaching and dyeing. It has one of the most extensive water footprints of all sectors. DNV GL and Paradigm Shirt are two companies working to make responsible water consumption mainstream, with the launch of a new self-assessment tool and a line of sustainably produced T-shirts.

DNV GL and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have together developed a self-assessment tool to help textile companies evaluate the water footprint of their manufacturing processes. The information gathered from the assessment allows companies to make more informed decisions about how to manage water consumption in their supply chains.

The tool is a measure for textile companies to obtain a better understanding of their resource efficiency and insight into where they can reduce consumption. DNV GL and UNIDO have a common interest in combating water scarcity and improving industry awareness of water-related risks and opportunities.

The Global Network for Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production will facilitate the use of the tool, which primarily targets small and medium-sized companies. It will guide companies on the use of the tool and interpretation of results.
