Made-By Environmental Benchmark for Fibres

The Made-By Environmental Benchmark for Fibres compares the environmental impact of the most commonly used fibres in the garment industry. Made-By was a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to ‘make sustainable fashion common practice’.

It ranks 28 fibres on six common parameters: greenhouse gas emissions; human toxicity; eco-toxicity; energy; water; and land.

Based on these parameters, each fibre is scored and placed into one of five classifications: Class A to Class E. Fibres for which not enough data was available have been listed as Unclassified.

Businesses can use the Benchmark to make informed fabric choices.
