Updated : 2013
The textile and apparel industry consume a large share of raw materials and energy consumption in their manufacturing locations. Pilot factories from the manufacturing sector of major cotton products have been invited to this case study, that aims to help them build their low carbon competitive advantages by identifying carbon emission reduction opportunities.
This document demonstratese 5 pilot reports in jeans manufacturing supply chain, including spinning, dyeing, weaving, finishing, garment manufacturing and washing. Four internal carbon assessment tools were adopted to quantitatively monitor the pilot factories’ GHG emissions levels and qualitatively position the potential carbon reduction opportunities.
