We continuously challenge the status quo in the deep belief that we can make our industry sustainable.
The environmental impact of textile processing has become a growing concern for global brands and their consumers. An independent global study in 2010 estimated that six million tons of textile chemicals are used each year. Add to that an estimate suggesting that textile manufacturing processes contribute close to 10 percent of the world’s carbon impact.
Brand owners and retailers around the world are taking action to evaluate the environmental impact of textile treatment, dyeing and finishing processes in response to consumer concerns. It is no longer sufficient merely to comply with relevant regulations.
Archroma’s Brand & Performance Textile Specialties is developing products and processes that are safer and gentler for the consumer and for the environment. Our experience demonstrates that sustainability can generate innovation, performance and considerable cost savings for our customers.
