American & Efird (A&E), a leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread, and technical textiles, released its 2017-2018 corporate sustainability report. The report’s theme 'Ethical Thread' emphasises the company’s commitment to its industry-leading sustainability programme and shares its goals for future.

Highlighting areas of safety, environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility in its annual report, A&E spotlights its continued progress and improvements in global water recycling and reuse, zero-waste-to-landfill efforts, and reduction in carbon footprint among others.

This year’s notable sustainability highlights include various topics. According to the report, over 1.5 billion litres of wastewater has been recycled and reused since 2013. This amount of water would be enough to supply 75 million people with water for one day at 20 litres per person. There is a 48 per cent reduction in global water consumption (litres per kg of thread) since 2006.

Zero-waste-to-landfill status has grown to 16 global manufacturing operations and support facilities in 2017, with five other operations over the 91 percentile mark. A&E’s global goal is to achieve this sustainability designation in every manufacturing operation worldwide, according to the report.

11 per cent reduction of global carbon footprint (CO2e in kg per kg of thread) since 2006. 7 per cent reduction in global power consumption (kwh per kg of thread) since 2006.

Categories addressed in this report include water stewardship, solid waste, carbon footprint, energy conservation, social responsibility, employee health and safety, sustainable products, product stewardship, sustainable packaging, and supply chain sustainability. (GK)
