Having been released in June 2016, the Responsible Wool Standard focuses on animal welfare and land management at farm level, in addition to traceability of the supply chain. Control Union is proud to announce we have already certified 10 projects for this program.
Three of the projects involve Australian farms, while the rest belong to wool processors, factories and brands in China, Taiwan, Bulgaria and Germany.
In the near future, we are expecting farms in South America and South Africa to gain certification.
We are confident RWS will continue to be a success as many international brands have publicly expressed their commitment towards the standard.
