A brand new certification has launched today for vertical farming – Sustainable Indoor Farming.
Vertical Farming is a rapidly growing, cutting edge, technology-driven food production system in a controlled environment, where space, water, and nutrient efficiency is maximised through growing plants in vertically stacked soil-less substrates.
Citizens of Humanity Group has established a US-based farming program to encourage farmers to adopt regenerative methods to grow cotton for its brands, Citizens of Humanity, AGOLDE and GOLDSIGN. Reducing its carbon impact is a critical part of the company's sustainability initiatives, and the company plans to use this cotton for both denim and knits.
Shaniko Wool Company is the first US farm group to achieve the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certification, and Control Union USA is proud to have served as their certifying office!
