Abstract
This new Nordic report aims to feed into discussions related to indicators for the envisaged global target on improved chemical information throughout the textile value chain. It provides input from stakeholders in the textile industry and the study gives two suggestions for possible indicators to be developed.Textile companies commonly make use of Restricted Substance Lists, RSLs to collect chemical information. Use of commonly agreed RSLs of a similar scope could be used to indicate increases in chemical information flow as they require a certain amount of information to be complied. A second indicator could be measuring the amount/share/percentage of a company’s production for which there is transparency or traceability when it comes to chemical content. This information would have the potential to provide textile recyclers with useful information.
