Abstract

Product-service systems (PSS) are considered to provide environmental benefits compared to conventional consumption. The textile industry causes many negative environmental and social impacts. In our research project, we conduct a life-cycle assessment of a use-oriented PSS: The renting of casual clothing. In this article, we present the approach to develop our functional unit “One year of varied use of clothing” and that of the baseline-scenario.
