Unifi Inc., the recycled polyester yarn manufacturer, based in North Carolina, has published its latest sustainability report highlighting the company's progress.

Meredith Boyd, senior vice president, Technology, Innovation & Sustainability, said, Unifi's commitment to environmental, social, and governance responsibility is at the heart of all they do. This year's sustainability report showcases the organization's hard work, making it one of its most influential years since its foundation a half-century ago. They put money into technology and product development that prioritized decreasing their environmental effect, and they went even further in the direction of sustainability by increasing transparency.

The company is investing in new, innovative products and processes that will minimize overall energy and water consumption throughout the life cycle of its products and customers. Unifi has committed to continuing to use Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on its products in order to reduce the company's environmental effect for customers, brands, and end-consumers.

The report also reveals that quarter-over-quarter, sales of Unifi's main recycled brand have increased, highlighting the promise of lower-impact materials. Six of Unifi's seven plants that it owns and operates have achieved zero waste to landfill and the Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of Unifi continues to be below 1.0.

In the Appendix of its Sustainability Report, Unifi includes an in-progress Global Reporting Initiative and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board disclosure grid.

Eddie Ingle, CEO, said that they have a responsibility to be a vocal and committed player in the search for a better future for people and our world as a global leader in textile solutions. He is proud of the substantial progress they've made in the last year, including taking more steps toward our 2022 objective of recycling 30 billion bottles from landfills. They'll keep making progress towards their objective of working now for the betterment of tomorrow through strategic innovation in their processes and the inherent brilliance of their employees.
