Identifying Low Carbon Sources of Cotton and Polyester Fibers

This report was developed by the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action (FICCA) Raw Material Working Group with the primary goal of identifying the key processes which contribute to lower carbon intensive raw materials for cotton and polyester. The work was carried out through engagement with industry experts, textile and apparel organizations, and working group members with SCS Global Services (SCS) as the neutral technical lead.

The report reviews different methods for the production of materials e.g. organic farming as compared to conventional, or virgin polyester as compared to mechanically recycled polyester. However, the report does not aim to make comparisons between fiber types e.g. cotton compared to polyester. The Raw Materials Working Group would encourage anyone reading the report to avoid comparing one material to another as the intention of the report is to provide insight into how to reduce GHGs for an individual material through changing methods of production rather than promote the use of one material over another.
