According to Elevate, the company and its brands will utilize this membership to accelerate and further expand upon their adoption of preferred fibers.Textile Exchange guides brands, manufacturers, and farmers toward more intentional production, starting with raw materials and fibers. Its goal is to help the industry achieve a 45% reduction in the emissions that come from producing fibers and raw materials by 2030, speeding up the adoption of practices that improve positive impact on water, soil health, and biodiversity.
Previously, Elevate participated in Textile Exchange’s 2025 recycled polyester challenge and is now a full member of the organization.“We are thrilled to further our involvement in the key initiatives that Textile Exchange is driving forward to reduce our impact and improve sustainability practices even more,” says Jimmy Summers, chief sustainability officer for Elevate Textiles. “This membership gives our company and brands additional tools needed to achieve preferred fiber goals and holistically reduce our impact from the start of the supply chain.
Summers continues, “We are currently using Textile Exchange standards at many of our facilities across the globe, specifically organic content standard (OCS), recycled content standard (RCS), and global recycled standard (GRS). We look forward to continuing our work with the organization to provide our customers and stakeholders with the most responsibly and sustainably sourced materials possible.”
