Stella McCartney Backs First Life Cycle Assessment for Man Made Cellulosic Fibers
By Matt Mace, Edie.net
Luxury fashion brand Stella McCartney will be able to better map the environmental impacts of its raw materials, after commissioning the first ever Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for man-made cellulose fiber (MMCF) used in production.
Stella McCartney commissioned a study into the environmental performance of ten raw material sources of MMCF, carried out by third-party certifier SCS Global Services. The study, which will be shared across the textile and apparel industry, examined environmental issues ranging from deforestation to viscose-sourcing practices.
