Group Environmental Policy
Environmental considerations are embedded in Camira’s culture. We are holders of the Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development and recognised for environmental leadership and pioneering a sustainable textile industry.
At the heart of our values is a commitment to sustainable business practices. Our goal is to exemplify environmental best practice across our business activities by operating to the highest environmental standards.
In support of our goal we commit to:
Uphold sustainability principles within our supply chain and products by:
Sourcing materials from environmentally responsible suppliers;
Embracing environmental decision making in product design and development;
Extending our EU Ecolabel range of fabrics including those from renewable and recycled fibres.
Protect the environment and prevent pollution by:
Reducing our consumption of non-renewable energy sources;
Reviewing our resilience plan to constantly take account of climate change and implementing adaptation measures to protect our business;
Controlling the use and storage of chemicals and substances.
Eliminate waste from our business by:
Reducing waste through the continual improvement of production quality and supplier relationships;
Reusing materials and packaging throughout operations and applying circular economy principles;
Recycling and recovering waste through segregation to develop our ‘zero to landfill’ status across our network of locations.
Embed positive environmental practices and culture by:
Engaging with people to encourage awareness, knowledge and participation;
Ensuring compliance with legislative and stakeholder requirements;
Communicating with and supporting our people and with our local, regional and national communities.
We are dedicated to the continual improvement of our environmental management system and to enhancing our environmental performance. To this end, objectives and targets are set, monitored and reviewed at planned intervals by Camira’s Senior Management, along with this Group Environmental Policy statement, to ensure that Camira achieves its goals and commitments.
