Certifying sustainable cashmere

Control Union was recently approved as a certification body by the Sustainable Fibre Alliance to certify for its Sustainable Fibre Alliance (SFA) - Cashmere Standard.

For Businesses to achieve Net Zero, funding for environmentally friendly enterprises must be forthcoming

Companies are being asked to disclose business risks and opportunities caused by both climate change and a commitment to Net Zero.

Business around the world need to join the race to Net Zero – but how can they do it?

The first, and arguably most important, goal of the COP26 United Nations climate change conference focuses on securing global Net Zero in order to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. For companies directly engaging in the production or use of coal and other fossil fuels, carrying out deforestation, or financing those who do, this goal serves as a clear cease and desist order.
