Possible is not a fact, it’s a mindset

As a manufacturer of nonwovens and printed nonwovens, we know that our use of energy, solvents and polymer affects the environment. We have always been committed to reducing the environmental impact from our operations, and as global challenges are now calling for urgent actions, we acknowledge that sustainability is real and here to stay.
Adopting the statement “Sustainable is Possible” defines our courage and curiosity to ask questions that open new opportunities. We will keep pushing the limits of sustainability – we know that it is not a fixed target, but an endless journey. It is fundamental: How can we reimagine, reduce and reuse?

Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to end poverty, hunger and inequality, take action on climate change and the environment, improve access to health and education, build strong institutions and partnerships – and more.

Out of these 17 goals we have chosen 6 where we are committed to take action.
