Sateri has scored ‘A’ in CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) for Climate Change in 2019, placing it at Leadership band and top 27 per cent of companies in its sector for implementing best practices. It attained an ‘A’ for more than half of 11 categories that it was assessed for including value chain engagement, Scope 1,2,3 emissions, and governance.

This is the first time Sateri has participated in the annual voluntary reporting. It is also the first time that a viscose producer has reached Leadership band. Sateri’s ‘A’ overall score is higher than the ‘C’ average globally.

“We are very pleased to achieve such a commendable score on our first attempt at CDP reporting. It is a validation of our efforts and actions to combat climate change and our contribution towards decarbonising the textile industry. The CDP platform not only helps us measure and benchmark our sustainability performance against more than 8,400 companies globally, but also serves as a management tool for continuous improvement,” said Allen Zhang, president of Sateri.

Sateri has made great strides in the last year on emission reduction work. In June 2019, Sateri and the China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC) jointly launched the EcoCosy Climate Leadership Programme. The programme invites Sateri’s value chain partners to participate in the Climate Stewardship 2030 Initiative to set a decarbonisation pathway for the fashion industry to reduce the industry’s GHG emissions by 30 per cent by 2030. Results of the first phase of the programme were published in the EcoCosy Climate Leadership Whitepaper 2020, which was shared at COP25 in Madrid last year.

Sateri is the world’s largest producer of viscose fibre, a natural and sustainable raw material found in everyday items like textiles, baby wipes and personal hygiene products.

Sateri’s range of high-quality viscose products is independently verified as safe and responsibly produced. It is the world's first viscose company to obtain the Made in Green by Oeko-tex product label.

Sateri is a founding member of the Collaboration for Sustainable Development of Viscose (CV), an industry initiative to address sustainability challenges and drive market transformation.
