Clean Globe provides globally recognized, accredited, certification worldwide for the sustainable supply chain which includes but not limited to organic, recycled, and responsible animal fibers to organizations in textile, clothing, footwear, plastic, leather, and other industries.
The overall aim of certifying products, processes, or services is to give confidence to all interested parties that a product, process, or service fulfills specified requirements. The value of certification is the degree of confidence and trust that is established by an impartial and competent demonstration of fulfillment of specified requirements by a third party. (Ref. ISO 17065: 2012)
(eg: Organic or recycled) Talk to the customer (buyer, brand, or retailer) and identify their specific requirements; Example scenario: the buyer may require products with recycled polyester and they might simply inform merchandisers, a recycled program is required.
Select the exact program(s).
Example scenario: certain products to be produced with 10% recycled materials and certain products with 50% recycled materials + REACH compliant chemical inputs; Concern: RCS is the only program that able to claim with 10% recycled materials and the chemical compliance of ‘REACH’ is covered by GRS. So, the facility needs to be certified for both GRS and RCS.
