In response to demand from a couple of key companies, Textile Exchange is initiating a project to determine if there is a need for a common approach to address the issues associated with the raising of wool from sheep, and possibly other ruminants such as goats or alpaca, through the creation of a global standard. Thus webinar discusses the process involved. The issues currently include animal welfare (as expressed by the Five Freedoms), land management, farm worker welfare, and proper chain of custody throughout the supply chain. To assess this need, and to potentially engage in the development of a standard, we want to involve stakeholders from the regions around the globe, the different parts of the supply chain, and the various markets. We are asking you to be part of this effort. If the need to develop a standard is established, you will then have the chance to decide how you would like to participate.
