This module helps brands assess their environmental management policies and practices. There are separate modules for apparel/textile brands and for footwear brands to capture the different products’ unique impacts. The apparel/textiles Environment Module measures the impacts of the brand’s activities throughout product lifecycles. This includes:
Care and repair
End of use programs.
The Footwear Brand Environment module is similar, but looks at construction techniques and adhesives specific to footwear and focuses more on end-of-use programs rather than care, since footwear care contributes minimal environmental impacts relative to apparel care.
