Nilit, a leader in sustainable, quality Nylon 6.6 for apparel, has been ranked first among the top ten companies in Israel who reduced air emissions in 2019, by the Israeli ministry of environmental protection. The company’s efforts in improving manufacturing footprint, introducing responsible products, and supporting communities are being appreciated.

"For fifty years, Nilit has been guided by a strict ethics code that defines how our company interacts with customers, global and local brands, business partners, employees, and the environment," said Ilan Melamed, Nilit's general manager. “We are pleased to be recognised for our most recent sustainability achievements that support our long-standing goal of influencing the apparel world to use more sustainable products in more responsible ways.”

In a report by the Israeli ministry of environmental protection, Nilit was ranked first in a list of the top ten companies in Israel who reduced air pollution emissions in 2019 compared to previous measurements. The company’s conversion from fuel oil to natural gas generated an 86 per cent emission reduction, a significant achievement for the improvement of the environment.

Nilit was featured in the most recent episode of Earth with John Holden. Hosted by Emmy award winner and former NBC News correspondent John Holden, Earth showcases innovative solutions to promote the planet’s health. For the "Today's Eco-Friendly Apparel" segment, the Earth team visited Nilit facilities in Israel and the US and interviewed the executive team to learn more about Nilit’s environmentally responsible premium Nylon 6.6 operations and products.

Sourcing Journal included Nilit in its Sustaining Voices recognition programme celebrating the apparel industry’s creative innovations and forward-thinking environmental initiatives. Nilit was recognised in the Emissions Reduction category along with companies like Gucci and Maersk. Nilit’s unique clean energy cogeneration plant at its Israel facility not only powers Nilit 's efficient operations but provides energy to the surrounding community. Nilit’s move to cleaner energy will reduce the company’s carbon dioxide emissions by 40 per cent and eliminate any emissions of toxic gases.

“Conscious consumers want to know that they are buying high quality, long-lasting sustainable fabrics that are made with respect for people and planet,” said Sagee Aran, head of global marketing. “Our Sensil portfolio offers that reassurance along with the performance, fashion, comfort, and well-being benefits that these consumers also expect from their premium apparel.”

Nilit has the broadest portfolio of sustainable premium Nylon products and the company’s research efforts are focused on creating additional environmentally responsible products for the Sensil collection of yarns and fabrics. These new Sensil products will address resource conservation, pollution elimination, biodegradability, and recycled inputs. The company is in the process of launching new products, in collaboration with key partners who have common targets for providing responsible textiles products to the market.
