Marco Lucietti, global marketing director of SANKO/ISKO division said that they were pleased to join forces with SAC, confident this effort will drive better product sustainability over time. It's a new model that shows how industries can collaborate and make significant steps forward in value chain performance.

The SAC's CEO Jason Kibbey said that the addition of ISKO to the Coalition they look forward to their participation in this industry wide effort in sustainability.

There are currently more than 160 members of the SAC, including Adidas, C&A, Gap, H&M, Kohl's, Levi's, Macy's, Nike, Puma, REI, Target, and VF Corporation.
