Anvil's textile mill passes WRAPe audit
Apr '10
Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) announced that Anvil Knitwear, a leading manufacturer of sportswear and accessories, is the first company worldwide to receive the organization's new WRAPe certificate for its textile mill, located in Honduras.

WRAPe is an enhanced environmental audit protocol that was developed over the past two years along with a group of environmental experts from the field. WRAPe is a comprehensive audit encompassing environmental management systems, waste discharge, use of chemicals in the manufacturing process and a great deal more, in addition to WRAP's existing rigorous compliance requirements. It was designed for the producers of textiles, leather products, notions, packaging and the other products that go into the final product for the apparel, footwear, leather and sewn products categories.

"Anvil's textile mill passed the WRAPe audit with flying colors, a clear demonstration of the commitment of local and senior management to environmentally responsible business practices," said Steve Jesseph, CEO of WRAP. "We're particularly pleased to be able to make this announcement on Earth Day."

WRAP has audited facilities in the sewn products sector in more than 70 countries for the past 10 years. Anvil Knitwear's textile mill had already been certified to its standard protocol.

"We are incredibly proud to be the first manufacturer in the world to receive WRAPe certification," said Anthony Corsano, CEO of Anvil. "This is an important milestone for Anvil and evidence of the social and environmental initiatives that we, as a company, continue to make as part of our overall commitment to protecting the communities in which we operate and the planet."
