Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Declaration

Download PDF

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic substances that persist in the environment, accumulate in living organisms and pose a risk to our health and the environment. They can be transported by air, water or migratory species across international borders, reaching regions where they have never been produced or used.

The Stockholm Convention Persistent Organic Pollutants Review Committee (POPRC) reviews and updates the Stockholm Convention’s list of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) which details the substances that are eliminated, restricted or subject to limitations. Camira monitors this list in conjunction with the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 on persistent organic pollutants and The Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulations 2007.

Based on information supplied by its suppliers, Camira declares that substances, processes and materials used or produced during the manufacture of fabrics at its UK facilities:

  • do not intentionally contain POPs;
  • do not involve laboratory-scale research using POPs;
  • do not use equipment containing POPs;
  • do not exceed the limits defined for unintentional trace contaminants of POPs.
This declaration will be reviewed periodically and maintained as documented information in the 'Our Policies' section of the Camira corporate website.
