Samenvatting

QUOTES “[…] companies are generally not yet involved in programs to produce and source wool in a responsible manner. Video footage from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) however, showed that many concerns should be raised with the current standard of wool production which often heavily burdens the animals and environments involved.” “The use and production of wool comes with very contradicting messages. Some people are horrified by the way in which sheep are often treated or are concerned with the amount of methane gas produced by sheep. The production of wool has a great impact on the environment and is even mentioned as one of the most polluting fibers available (Milieucentraal, 2015). Others however, advocate wool as a wonderful, natural and biodegradable fiber with great heat regulation properties and many health benefits.” “This research report will focus on both the negative and positive sides of wool production and will introduce a number of feasible initiatives that strive for responsible forms of wool production.” TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction. - //CHAPTER 1: Main subjects in this research / Establishing animal welfare / Defining environmental sustainability //CHAPTER 2: Animal welfare problem / Mulesing. - //CHAPTER 3: The environmental performance of wool / Land use and methane production / Pesticides / Scouring. - //CHAPTER 4: Opportunities for improvement / Responsible wool standard / GRASS / Organic wool / Restricted chemicals. – //CONCLUSION. - //Bibliography
