Huntsman promotes 'Sustainability in Action' initiative
Jul '14
In a company-wide effort spanning the globe, Huntsman Textile Effects has mobilized more than a quarter of its 3,000 strong associates at major facilities in eight countries to promote environmental sustainability through community activities. Clocking over 1,500 hours, this ‘Sustainability in Action’ initiative is the company’s latest global effort to support its ‘we see a better world’ focus. 
“As a leading supplier of dyes and textiles chemicals, Huntsman Textile Effects recognizes that we have a responsibility to not only create value for our stakeholders today but also make a sustainable and vibrant world possible for future generations,” said Paul Hulme, President of Huntsman Textile Effects. “In our latest initiative, Huntsman Textile Effects associates around the world have customized activities to meet the specific needs of their local communities. By showing what sustainability looks like in action, we are making a difference and celebrating environmental sustainability as a way of life in our workplaces and homes.” 
Sustainability is a core value of Huntsman Textile Effects. The company’s innovations help textile mills reduce waste and conserve resources to make life better for families around the world. Its processes and work environment encourage its associates to reduce resource consumption and turn waste streams into profitable products.
As an active contributor to society and a champion of environmental protection, Huntsman Textile Effects leads its industry in taking sustainable approaches to business. It is committed to addressing the textile industry’s toughest challenges, such as higher energy prices and scarcer water sources, through its product research and development programs. 
Since the textiles sector is a major global user of fresh water, water conservation and contamination prevention are key focus areas for Huntsman Textile Effects. This can be seen in its contribution to industry collaborations such as the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Group and in the revolutionary products that it develops, as well as its community-based projects. 
The latest ‘Sustainability in Action’ projects organized and conducted by the local Huntsman Textile Effects teams include tree planting, beach and park cleanups, recycling and waste disposal campaigns and community talks, as well as internal workshops and sustainability programs. Most of these activities are being carried out during June and July in support of World Environment Day (WED) 2014, which falls on June 5, with recycling and waste disposal projects continuing throughout the year. 
“Huntsman Textile Effects’ approach to sustainability is grounded in the belief that individual actions have the power to bring about extraordinary change when we all work together. This is also a central tenet of WED,” Mr. Hulme continued.
