Unifi has appointed Helen Sahi as the new vice president, global corporate sustainability, effective September 17, 2018. Unifi is a global textile solutions provider and a leading innovator in manufacturing synthetic and recycled performance fibres. Unifi works with influential brands in the sports apparel, fashion, home, automotive, and other industries.

In her role, Helen will lead, develop, and drive the sustainability strategy and execution for Unifi, and will integrate sustainability into the everyday fabric of the company’s business. Helen’s responsibilities include ensuring that Unifi’s sustainability strategy and practices are aligned with the company’s business objectives, and that all sustainability efforts are evaluated through a robust set of metrics, according to a Unifi media statement.

“Helen’s background includes significant responsibility and success in the technical, strategic and partnership aspects of sustainability policies and initiatives, and her vast experiences will help drive Unifi’s sustainability strategy and key programs across our global operations. We look forward to Helen further developing our relationships with chief sustainability officers throughout the textile and apparel supply chain and advancing the use of sustainability metrics into our operations, product line management, and innovation initiatives,” Richard Gerstein, executive vice president of global branded premium value-added products and chief marketing and innovation office said.

Helen has nearly three decades of experience helping companies such as Avery Dennison Corporation and Bank of America set and achieve their sustainability strategies and goals. Throughout her career, Helen has built effective partnerships with external organisations and NGOs to support and advance their sustainability efforts.

“Unifi has a great sustainability story to tell, including the company’s Champions of Sustainability customer recognition programme. Through their brand partnerships, Unifi’s Repreve has become the leading global branded recycled fibre with a goal of transforming 30 billion plastic bottles into fibres by 2022. I have great respect for Unifi’s commitment to sustainable innovation and I am eager to start working closely with the team,” Sahi said. (GK)
