bAwear Score is a young but experienced organization active since 2019 and was founded on the problem: “Why is it so difficult to access reliable and credible impact calculations for textile products?” Together with our partner SimaPro, we set a goal to change this. We believe textile LCA calculations should be accessible, credible and cost-effective. Enabling any company in the supply chain to gain credible insights, make better decisions and build communications around facts and figures. That is why bAwear Score provides solutions to create product-level impact transparency. Combining best-in-class LCA software with textile supply chain expertise, we enable you to gain impact insights based on primary and secondary data. Empowering you to become aware and in control of your product's environmental performance by generating credible data to identify impact hotspots, improve decision making and back up your sustainability communications.
