LONDON - Wet processing - which includes bleaching, dyeing and printing – is the weak link in efforts to reduce the environmental impact of textile supply chains, according to a new report.

The study, by the Planet Tracker financial think tank, says wet processing drives the majority of the industry's negative impact with an estimated 430 litres of water required to produce just one kilogram of fabric.

The report, 'Will Fashion Dye Another Day? Water-related financial risks in the textiles sector', asks whether fashion is pricing in water risk, reveals the scale of the financial and environmental impact of wet processing, and suggests how greater sustainability might be achieved.
