Freshwater on our planet is precious. Sweden Textile Water Initative brings together Swedish leather and textile companies in collaboration to reduce water, energy and chemical use in their supply chains.
H&M, IKEA, Filippa K and 20 other Nordic brands saved more than 6.7 billion liters of water, or the daily water supply* for 134 million people, in less than seven years. Under the guidance of the Sweden Textile Water Initiative (STWI), a programme driving global change towards sustainable textile and leather production, the factories have reduced water consumption and pollution while also improving their profits. Since joining the programme, participating factories have seen a return on investment of more than 240 percent over three years.Read more
Sweden Textile Water Initiative creates guidelines for increased sustainability. Based on the assumption that common guidelines pave the way for real change, our guidelines provide suppliers with clear instructions on how to work towards improved water efficiency, water pollution prevention and wastewater management in production processes. The guidelines are available in English and Chinese. Visit the Guidelines page to learn more.
