We aim to minimise the environmental impact of our production and our business activities, both for future generations and for ourselves as a company. We all share the same planet. Most of these adverse effects are linked to carbon emissions, water consumption, wastewater quality and chemical use. That’s where positive making comes in.
Sustainable fibres and materials are central in minimising our carbon footprint when we produce and process raw materials. When it comes to the environmental performance of our suppliers we focus on measuring, assessing and reducing. Our own activities are the focus of our climate protection policies. By 2030, we want our sites, transportation, employee mobility, plus any third-party data hubs and cloud services all to be carbon neutral. And we’re well on track. From 2006 to 2020 we slashed site- and transport-related CO₂ emissions by 55%.
By 2040, we want our supply chain partners to operate carbon neutrally too. And the one key prerequisite in achieving this? Transparency when it comes to the sources and levels of emissions in the supply chain.
