Disruptively sustainable and circular. Find out how choosing SPINNOVA® fibre helps mitigate climate change.
SPINNOVA® is The Climate-Positive Textile Fibre: its production saves more CO2 emissions than emits
Our innovation was developed in response to the most challenging megatrend our planet currently faces: a growing population and the environment’s limited ability to bear it.
A growing world population is the megatrend behind the climate crisis, and also taps into the textile industry. We are running out of textile fibres that don't burden the environment as much as current fibres. What we need is renewable raw materials like wood, and novel production processes with minimal environmental harm.
By 2030, the proportion of cellulose-based textile fibres other than cotton would need to grow significantly, as cotton farming is on a non-sustainable foundation. Innovators like us are working hard to create commercially and ecologically sustainable solutions out of cellulose. This will help fill what is known as ‘the cellulose gap’– the increasing shortfall created by the demand for cellulosic textile fibre and cotton's limited ability to meet it.
As well as bridging the cellulose gap, the SPINNOVA® fibre also helps fight climate change. Created with minimal water and emissions, it offers a solution to other huge megatrends challenging our planet and worsening the climate crisis; fresh water shortage and CO2 emissions.
A more positive megatrend we are responding to is the growth of conscious consumption. Businesses and consumers alike increasingly want to make sustainable material choices that help mitigate the effects of the climate crisis. A change for the better starts with choices made by individuals.
We believe that conscious choices should not be a luxury, but instead available to everyone. Our mission is to help brands make ecological, cellulose-based textiles an everyday, affordable commodity. Wearing and using materials that help save the environment also creates the kind of emotional wellbeing we all need more of.
By staying true to our mission, we believe that the SPINNOVA® fibre will revolutionize the textile industry, gradually replacing less sustainable options.
As we build our supply chain, we focus on establishing sustainability criteria for suppliers and monitoring their performance. To help us do this, we began formulating our Supplier Code of Conduct in 2021 and will start implementing it during 2022. The Supplier Code of Conduct will include requirements related to human rights, the environment, and ethical business practices. It will be aligned with the principles of the UN Global Compact and the labour standards set out by the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
