Sustainability makes financial sense in NRDC initiative

Written by Brett Mathews

NEW YORK – An initiative aimed at making textile mills in China more environmentally friendly while slashing their operating costs is set to ramp up its activities after recording some notable achievements in 2014. Target, Gap, Levi Strauss and H&M are among the brands working with the NRDC's Clean By Design programme, which last year saw more than half of the 33 mills it assisted to each save more than $150,000 per year by making water-saving and other operational improvements – with the top five mills on the programme saving more than $800,000 each per year.
