The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) was originally developed by Control Union Certifications (CU) in 2008 and ownership was passed to Textile Exchange January 1st, 2011.
The GRS is intended for companies that are making and/or selling products with recycled content. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, and labeling.
A further choice was made in the development of this standard to adopt a transaction certificate system. This provides a superior monitoring and controlling mechanism within both supply and value chains to further ensure the integrity of certified final products.
Developed with the textile industry in mind, the GRS may also be applied to products from any industry.
