Sateri has signed the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, becoming the first viscose producer in China to support this global fashion agenda.
This is an initiative convened by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It calls on the fashion industry to support the goals of the Paris Agreement in limiting global temperature rise to well below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. To do this, industry leaders will aim to achieve 30 percent aggregate reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
“UNFCCC is excited to have Sateri joining the Fashion Industry Charter on Climate Action and committing towards global climate action as the first Chinese viscose producer to do so. We hope that it will inspire more textile companies from China to join and take action," said Niclas Svenningsen, Manager of Global Climate Action, UNFCCC.
By becoming a signatory of the Charter, Sateri will be participating in relevant groups which bring together stakeholders and experts in the fashion and textile sectors. These groups include the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), China Association of Circular Economy (CACE), and the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA).
“Sateri is committed to growing our business as sustainably as we can. Our adoption of the Fashion Charter goals is a bold leap but we believe that pushing the boundaries is necessary. We are also stepping up on our engagement with industry partners to be part of the collective action to accelerate efforts against climate change. As we formulate Sateri Vision 2030 for a sustainable business,
carbon reduction will be one of our key focus areas," said Allen Zhang, President of Sateri.
