LONDON - Ten leading certification schemes and sustainability initiatives are accused of providing an "industry-wide smokescreen for the unsustainable trajectory of fast fashion" in a controversial new report from the Changing Markets Foundation.

Entitled 'Licence to Greenwash', the study sets its sights on the Higg Index, Oeko-Tex, ZDHC, Bluesign, Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C), Ellen Macarthur Foundation (EMF), The Microfibre Consortium (TMC), WRAP, EU Ecolabel and Textile Exchange (TE) and concludes none are “fit for purpose”.

Already provoking debate in the industry, Ecotextile News has approached all 10 organisations most of which have reacted to the report's findings. We publish a summary of their responses below.
