YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-07-27 07:51:00 – None

Chinese apparel brand HOdo, recently announced that it has produced and exported the country's first batch of carbon-neutral clothes, therefore contributing to the establishment of a sustainable clothing ecosystem. 

According to HOdo, the emissions associated with the clothing's manufacture, which includes over 11,000 pairs of swimming trunks transported to the United States, were offset by afforestation efforts, which help absorb carbon dioxide by establishing a forest carbon sink.

The HOdo Group began artificially cultivating yew trees in east China's Jiangsu Province in 1997 and currently boasts the country's largest yew seedling base, consisting of over 165 hectares of woodland.

Zhou Haijiang, board chairman of HOdo Group, said that HOdo Group aims to motivate additional garment businesses to undertake efforts to decrease carbon emissions by exporting the batch of carbon-neutral clothes.

Zhou added that they’ll actively combine resources to establish carbon-neutral industrial clusters and contribute to industrial transformation.

More than 20,000 Chinese businesses have benefited from carbon-neutral labeling, carbon asset management, and carbon footprint services, according to the company.

China's national carbon market recently opened for trade, marking a key step toward the country's goal of peaking carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and reaching carbon neutrality by 2060.

The textile and apparel sector has become the first industry in China to push the industrial-level zero carbon objective in order to aggressively respond to the national "Double Carbon" target.

As a critical leading enterprise of China's national brands, HOdo uses its advantages in brand operation and clothing manufacturing to actively practice the concept of green development, and solemnly releases the Declaration of HOdo Carbon Summit and Carbon Neutralization, as well as the HOdo low-carbon roadmap in 2021, with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2041.

At the same time, HOdo prioritizes corporate responsibility and has signed contracts with a number of organizations, including international certification DNV, scientific research institutions, and the Yangtze River Delta Carbon Institute. The Yangtze River Delta focuses on creating the value chain's carbon peak and sustainable carbon development, with the goal of launching a "carbon-neutral clothing supply chain alliance.
