Use natural resources responsibly - our Conscious Actions

Our planet is facing scarcity issues on many fronts. According to the UN , the world will need 50% more food, 45% more energy and 30% more water by 2030.  

In the textile industry, water plays a particular critical role  -  from growing cotton to washing our clothes at home. So using resources efficiently makes long-term business sense and will increasingly provide opportuniĀ­ties for competitive advantage. To operate as a sustainable business, we are committed to conserving water, soil, air and species. More than that, we want to help ensure that resources are being shared in a fair way and that we consider the needs of both present and future generations.
