Dual Carbon Solutions for Textile and Apparel Industry

Rooted in the industry deeply, we offer tailored services to textile and apparel clients, including product carbon footprint certification, carbon neutral product certification, and supply chain emission management

Industry background

According to the latest data released by the General Administration of Customs, in 2023, China's cumulative exports of textiles and apparel reached $293.64 billion. While the textile and apparel export industry has stabilized and improved, it faces challenges related to high energy consumption. This could result in some high-carbon products being unable to meet the sustainability requirements of foreign importers, thus hindering their export. For instance, the European Commission has issued the 'EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles', which mandates that relevant products must provide sufficient sustainable information for export. Additionally, with the gradual strengthening of environmental awareness, downstream clothing brand enterprises along the industry chain are actively disclosing carbon footprint information and establishing carbon neutrality goals, actively promoting collaborative carbon reduction among midstream and upstream enterprises.

Analysis of pain points in the entire industry chain

Core pain points of textile and apparel raw material suppliers:

  • Unable to fulfill carbon footprint certification requirements requested by downstream customers.
  • Lack of expertise in calculating carbon emissions in the textile and apparel production process.
  • Uncertainty on how to optimize textile processes for carbon reduction.
  • Difficulty in developing low-carbon or zero-carbon products due to the absence of comprehensive solutions and technical support.
  • Inability to meet sustainability assessment and audit requirements from domestic and international customers.

Core pain points of textile and apparel brand manufacturers:

  • Low quality carbon disclosure, lacking crucial carbon emission data (e.g., scope 3 emissions).
  • Desire to label products with carbon information, but lacking authoritative carbon footprint and product carbon neutrality certifications.
  • Difficulty in coordinating carbon reduction across the supply chain, especially facing resistance from upstream suppliers.
  • Lack of digital tools for real-time monitoring and management of upstream supplier carbon emissions.
  • Difficulty in selecting low-carbon suppliers due to the inability to quantify their carbon emissions.
  • Inability to meet forthcoming compliance requirements for disclosing product carbon footprints under upcoming ESPR regulations.
