Change in impact calculation

The impact of textile products with recycled content was always calculated using a certain method. We have updated this method, using the bAwear-Score model. This means we use more elaborate, recent and accurate data, not only reflecting the impact of the use of recycled fibers but also the impact on other processes. With respect to water consumption, bAwear uses the ReCiPe 2016 midpoint method, in which the actual water consumption is taken and not a water scarcity model. This generally results in lower, but more realistic, data for water savings. For more questions, please contact:

*The calculation of the bAwear-Score is based on the proprietary bAwear textile model and SimaPro software and on the input (primary data) provided. In case primary data was lacking, secondary data was used. The secondary data are extracted from the EcoInvent® database and publicly available literature sources. When using secondary data (in part or solely), the results of the calculation are only indicative. The calculations are performed using ReCiPe 2016 midpoint method. Data security is covered by our partner PRé Consultants, having implemented ISO 27001:2013.
