Written by John Mowbray

VIRGINIA – US-based not-for-profit, Conservation International, has told Ecotextile News it will develop a new Freshwater Health Index, and with its partners, will also contribute to new guidelines on the Natural Capital Protocol for the apparel industry. Conservation International says it is also working with other stakeholders to develop new tools and evaluate future scenarios related to freshwater use in industries and how this impacts on water basins in industrial regions such as China and Cambodia. CI received a grant to support the development of the Freshwater Health Index from the Victor and William Fung Foundation Ltd., which was established in 2006 to commemorate the centenary of the Fung Group.
