The site features examples of exceptional sustainability initiatives by nonwoven and engineered material companies around the world and across the supply chain in the categories of sustainable innovation – making intentional changes to generate long-term social and environmental benefits; responsible sourcing – using materials that are primarily bio-based or from feedstocks drawing on regenerative, and/or sustainable agriculture principles to advance circularity or returning the product into the supply chain after use and responsible end-of-life solutions – incorporating materials that are either recyclable or biodegradable.
From recyclable packaging, biodegradable fibres and sustainable materials to innovative technologies, manufacturing methods and scientific advancements, companies in this sector are making an important difference in environmental efficiency.
Featured companies include Bast Fibre Tech (BFT), Procter & Gamble (P&G) , Dow, Berry Global, PFNonwovens, Reifenhäuser, Rockline, Lenzing, Fibertex, Owens & Minor, Southeast Nonwovens, Spuntech and Natureworks.
