STOCKHOLM - Sweden Textile Water Initiative, which works with Swedish textile businesses such as H&M, Lindex and IKEA to reduce water, chemical and energy use in their global supply chains, has announced it is expanding to new countries in Asia and Africa after a successful pilot project in India. 28 Swedish textile and leather companies have worked with the project, which was launched through the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI). The project works by educating suppliers and sub-contractors to help reduce the use of water, energy and chemicals in apparel brand supply chains.
