DyStar reduces overall emissions in 2013

In its fourth annual Sustainability Report, dyes and textile chemicals producer DyStar said that despite a rise in production of highly emission intensive dyes, it was able to reduce overall emissions in 2013.

“2013 was a very successful year for DyStar with a consistent increase in revenue across all sales regions, while operational costs stayed roughly at the same level owing to efficiency improvements,” DyStar said.

It added, “The total manufacturing output increased by 12% and the hike in production shifted towards a higher proportion of dyes which involve higher energy intensive manufacturing, resulting in a slight increase in emissions intensity.

“However we managed to reduce overall emissions intensity in both dyestuff and chemical manufacture in 2013.”

DyStar released its fourth annual Sustainability Report following the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative GRI3.1.

In this report, DyStar updated its stakeholders on the progress towards achieving its sustainability goals set in 2010 towards reducing the environmental impacts of its operations.

“Anticipating the demand for sustainable production practices in the textile industry, we were among the first to recognize sustainable actions as a business imperative,” says, CEO Harry Dobrowolski.

DyStar’s two fold sustainability approach is to reduce the impact of its own operations, but also to assist its customers in decreasing their environmental footprint.

DyStar published its first Sustainability Report in 2010 and set concrete goals for 20% reduction by 2020 in four key areas; energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and waste generation.

“We will continue to face challenges the changes in the textile market and continue to offer our customers the most innovative, high quality and sustainable products,” Gerald Talhoff, VP Global Manufacturing and Supply Chain informs. (AR)
