Supply Chain Management.
We seek to establish long-term sustainable partnerships with our customers, suppliers and industry peers. It’s how we’ve become a collective force for global good.

Our social responsibility agenda includes:

> Humanity – We operate to the highest standards of ethics across our entire supply chain, ensuring there’s no forced labour, no child labour, and no other human rights violations.

> Charitable Giving – We actively support a number of local and national charities

> Biodiversity Initiatives: We take responsibility for conserving our major feedstock and viscose.

> Community involvement: We participate in a series of industry programmes to promote a sustainable lifestyle and educate about the environment, recycling, life cycle analysis and the Circular Economy.

> Cleaner Earth Partnerships: We have Strategic Worldwide Collaboration Agreements with many purpose-led companies, including CISL, IOM3, SPE, CFLEX and TerraCycle.

Clean Production Practices.
We reduce our use of all non-renewable resources through continuous innovation, maximising our process efficiency, and minimising waste throughout the supply chain. 

In our commitment to clean and responsible production practices, we have:

> Installed a state-of-the-art effluent treatment system in 2021. This groundbreaking technology uses a filter medium from our NowoEco series, helping to reduce COD and BOS while minimising the need for pre-treatment chemicals.

> Installed a bespoke positive air pressure maintenance system to safeguard our products for our customers.

> Promised to be a zero-landfill business by 2030, through rigorous recycling, composting, and by finding new uses for our by-products.

> Achieved Chain of Custody Certification for our current major supplier of raw materials for full traceability. We aim to have this certification in place with all our suppliers by 2023.
