If there is no measurement, there is no improvement

The EIM, Environmental Impact Measuring software, is a unique and powerful platform developed to monitor environmental impact of garment finishing processes. EIM was created to provide the laundries, garment finishers and brands with a tool that helps them to build more sustainable processes in an efficient and economically viable way.

Only good? Do better!
Why use EIM?

A worldwide measurement standard

Jeanologia Demo
EIM is a clear and transparent tool that provides reliable measures to help identify where the impact is greatest and determine efficient action plans to improve garment finishing processes. Because we believe that the first step to minimize this impact is to properly assess the best points to improve... Too often aspects are misunderstood, and through EIM it is easier to visualize viable goals that will really make a difference. EIM provides valuable information to determine if your garment finishing efforts lead in the mid and long term to the desired objective: THE REDUCTION OF THE IMPACT ON OUR ENVIRONMENT.
Enviromental Threshold

EIM assesss the environmental impact in four individual categories: waterconsumption, energy consumption, chemical impact and Worker's Health.

EIM works with specific benchmarks according to the type of product.

Calculation of the enviromental Impact
Considerations to the calculation of the environmental impact of the four different categories.

Water consumption

Measured in liters of water per garment produced. The total consumption will be the one resulting of the quantity of water used in each process step. It will depend on the liquor ratio of each of this process steps.

Energy Consumption

There are various energy sources to supply the laundry needs. In the production plants, we mainly need: Mechanical energy: The necessary energy to run the machines and other tools.

Caloric energy: The one needed to heat the water of the washing steps and to heat the air for the drying steps.

EIM takes into consideration both groups and bring them to a one unit measure, the KWh. The total energy consumed in one finishing process will be the sum of the energy consumed in every finishing step.


EIM integrates the ZDHC MRSL conformance, and the screen chemistry programs. Every chemical is given an EIM CIS (EIM Chemical Impact Score) according to its ZDHC MRSL conformance level and hazard. EIM CIS is represented by a number that goes from 0 to 100 and a color (green for preferred chemicals, orange for acceptable chemicals, red to identify those to phase out and grey for those there is not enough information for an accurate hazard assessment). The EIM CIS calculation rules have been developed in collaboration with Scivera ( .EIM CIS is calculated by authorized third parties. The Chemicals impact of a finishing process is calculated following analog methodology that screen chemistry. For more detailed information about EIM CIS and scoring rules you can contact Scivera.

Worker health

Worker health impact measures the impact on the worker health that operations they have to do finish one garment might have. Operations are score according to the inherent ergonomic risk & factors of each operation have. The worker impact will be the sum of the score of all the operation done that shows this inherent hazard.

Being clear is the best presentation.

In addition, EIM is a powerful tool on which to support the announcements of your efforts and achievements, since reliable information becomes better communication, which involves consumers concerned in the impact of the products they consume. EIM points to become a global standard for the textile industry, growing each day in the number of brands and laundries which start working with it.
