Rhodia, a Solvay Group company with its smart and sustainable yarns and fibres, has joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), a not-for-profit international group committed to promote transformation of the textile chain through sustainability. Rhodia is the first company in Latin America to join SAC, which brings together over 200 global entities.

More than 200 global brands, retailers and manufacturers, as well as government, non-profit environmental organisations, and academic institutions have collectively committed to improving supply chain sustainability in the apparel, footwear and textile industries.

"Our purpose in joining the SAC is to contribute to this platform and help to stimulate sustainability performance in Brazil and Latin America," said Renato Boaventura, CEO of Solvay Group's Fibras Global Business Unit. "We are pleased to be part of this organisation and confident that this participation will add-value to the sustainability of our textile products over time. The tool proposed by the SAC is becoming a model of how industries can collaborate in making a positive impact on value chain performance," added Boaventura.

In its relationship with the SAC, Rhodia will support the Higg Index, a measurement tool that assesses sustainability performance and drives supply chain transparency and decision-making to better efficiency and sustainability impact. The Higg Index is an open sourced, indicator-based tool that allows suppliers, manufacturers, brands and retailers to evaluate materials, products, facilities and processes based on environmental and product design choices.

"We welcome the addition of Rhodia to the Sustainable Apparel Coalition and look forward to its participation in this industry-wide effort in sustainability," said SAC CEO, Jason Kibbey. "Having Rhodia, of the Solvay Group, as part of the Coalition widens the scope of our impact within the industry and accelerates the change we’re making towards responsible industry actions." Kibbey added. (SV)
