Clean by Design Report

This is a report written by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in 2015. It discusses NRDC’s green supply chain program in China. It provides ten best practices for textile mills and case studies applying these practices. NRDC launched its Clean by Design initiative in 2009 as an innovative “green supply chain” program to leverage the purchasing power of multinational corporations to reduce the environmental impacts of factories in their suppliers abroad. Working with a number of prominent global apparel retailers and brands, we have focused this program first in the textile industry in China, notorious for its energy and water intensity and pollution load
