BRUSSELS – Bremen Cotton Exchange has become the latest organisation to join Make the Label Count (MTLC) which is lobbying the European Commission to revise and improve its Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) methodology for textiles. Bremen Cotton joins organisations such as Plastic Soup Foundation, Changing Markets and Fibershed, as well as luxury brand John Smedley which have all put their weight behind the campaign since its launch last autumn. MTLC’s launch was led by the International Wool Textile Organisation, Cotton Australia and Australian Wool Innovation, and is backed by other natural fibres sectors including silk and alpaca.
A spokesperson from Bremen Cotton Exchange told Apparel Insider: “If the PEF development in Brussels continues like this, we will suffer such an unfair disadvantage in natural fibres sectors due to insufficient and partly unusable criteria.”
