Eurojersey, an Italian producer of warp-knit fabrics under the brand ‘Sensitive’ is partnering WWF Italia, to protect the Mediterranean Sea and its iconic species, within the scope of its SensitivEcoSystem project.

A Eurojersey press release said that this collaboration with WWF Italia is focused on safeguarding the Mediterranean from a series of threats, including pollution, overfishing and the negative impact of tourism.

Eurojersey has committed to preserve biodiversity, conserve the natural habitat and protect the species in the Mediterranean through a series of awareness-raising and communications activities.

According to the knits producer, its objective is to actively contribute to protect the loggerhead sea turtles ‘Caretta', now under threat in the first few days of their birth.

It will initiate awareness activities among fishermen and along the beaches in order to reduce the mortality of turtles.

It is estimated that each year about 130,000 turtles are accidentally caught in fishing gear, of which 40,000 die.

Eurojersey added that it has always been committed to environmental sustainability, with its water used for cooling the plant being reused, allowing thirty million litres of warm water to be recovered every year.

“The remaining water is reclaimed by an outside water purification group with ISO 9001:2000, OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2004 certification,” it informed.

Founded in 1960, Eurojersey operates a vertically integrated plant that is the only one of its kind in Europe, employing a team of 187 people and has an annual production capacity of 12 million metres.

Set up in 1961, World Wide Fund (WWF) is the world's largest organisation for the conservation of nature and has 24 national organisations, 5 affiliated organisations and 222 program offices in 96 countries.

More than 5 million people around the world with their help, allow WWF to support over 2,000 specific projects each year for the protection of biodiversity. (AR)
