Summary of news published since Week 21-2016

jpa4Sibil220CONSIDERING the steady growth of consumer awareness of environmental issues, it is surprising that only two major companies supplying the innerwear industry make a sustained effort to promote their commitment to ecology and sustainability. Fibre producer Lenzing led the way, which is unsurprising given that trees are its raw material, and it was shortly followed by Eurojersey, whose links to the environment are less obvious. But it is Eurojersey’s different environmental initiatives over the years that have shown how a company can help to safeguard the planet even though its raw materials are mainly non-renewable. Obviously, if all suppliers attempted to exploit environmental issues to boost their sales, none would benefit from the PR effects of their actions. But more could be done by more suppliers and the resulting improvements in the planet’s health would benefit all its inhabitants as well as the suppliers involved.
