NSF International, a global not-for-profit public health organization operating in more than 165 countries, has announced a strategic partnership with Textile Exchange, a global not-for-profit organisation working to make the textile industry more sustainable.
“By working together, we can expand our reach globally, work more deeply within existing programs and maximize the positive impact we’re making,” said LaRhea Pepper, Managing Director of Textile Exchange. “Both of our organizations and our members will benefit from this new strategic relationship.”
Together, NSF International and Textile Exchange possess technical and scientific expertise in sustainability standards development and certification as well as supply chain consulting, training and education services. NSF International has more than 70 years of standards development experience, including development of American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards.
NSF International will make targeted investments in Textile Exchange’s global operations, information systems and personnel. Additionally, NSF International will share expertise and resources related to standards development, certification, proprietary supply chain technology and global marketing capabilities. The partnership enhances both organizations’ sustainability services and gives NSF International access to Textile Exchange’s deep expertise and best practices in the preferred fibre and materials (PFM) industry.
