With COP26 continuing to dominate the headlines, it is vital to remember that climate change and biodiversity are intrinsically interlinked, and both are vital to the future health of our planet. With that in mind, we were delighted that the regenagri team from Control Union UK were recently been invited to contribute to a meeting with the United Nations Environmental Program’s (UNEP) internal task force on Sustainable Food Systems and Resilient Agriculture.
The first regenagri supply chain certification is awarded
Leading sustainable denim mill Candiani has become the first company to be certified against the regenagri chain of custody standard.
Candiani is a global leader in innovation and sustainability, producing for some of the most prestigious names in the market. They are widely recognized as some of the first in the denim industry to utilize only the finest, responsibly sourced cotton, fibers, and dyes and clean technologies to save water, energy and replace harmful chemicals.
Control Union was recently approved as a certification body by the Sustainable Fibre Alliance to certify for its Sustainable Fibre Alliance (SFA) - Cashmere Standard.
The SFA was established to tackle sustainability challenges in the production of cashmere, in particular the welfare of the goats, the environmental impact of farming them, and the social welfare of the herders who care for them. Developed in 2015, the standard is already well used in the textiles industry, with clients ranging from luxury brands to household names.
