Fountain Set (Holdings) Limited, a global leader in the manufacturing of knitted fabrics, announced its participation in the Sustainable Fashion Business Consortium (SFBC) as founding member.

The SFBC, the first of its kind in Hong Kong, was launched on April 22, 2008, Earth Day, by the Clothing Industry Training Authority (CITA) with the charter to encourage sustainable practices and to create more awareness for environmental protection across the fashion supply chain in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Its logo is titled 'Weaving Green'.

Fountain Set has been exploring innovative methods to develop more environmentally-friendly production processes, including investments in the research of non-water CO2-based dyeing technology – named Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fluid Dyeing Technology (CO2 Dyeing) – as well as Effluent Recycling to reduce effluent generation by Fountain Set's fabric mills.

In addition, wide ranges of environmental friendly products, including eco-fabrics are developed to foster harmony between humanity and nature.

Effective filtration ventilating systems have also been set up, and effluent treatment plants have been installed in the Greater China region to handle wastewater. Moreover, the Group supports material recycling along with the adoption of energy saving measures in operations.

Fountain Set joins 11 other industry-players including Central Textile (Hong Kong) Ltd, in the Consortium as forerunners in the commitment toward 'green clothing'.

Ace Style Group, Glorious Sun Enterprises Ltd, Gunzetal Ltd, High Fashion International Management Ltd, Lever Style Inc, Sun Hing Industries Holdings Ltd and TAL Apparel Ltd are also part of this initiative.
