Clean by Design
Clean by Design was created as a business-friendly program to reduce the environmental impacts of textile manufacturing in China and other developing countries. This “green supply chain” initiative is founded on Ten Best Practices – a proven set of process efficiency improvements to reduce the impact of textile dyeing and finishing mills, which are a key environmental “hot spot.” Within the program, hundreds of improvements have been demonstrated in more than 50 mills around the world that are high-impact, low-cost and profitable, with a short payback period of usually less than a year.
