After two years of publishing European Union-focused sustainability reports, we’re excited to announce our next milestone in the TenCate Protective Fabrics journey towards a sustainable future – the release of our very first Global Sustainability Report.
As a leader in protective fabrics, we seek to share an authentic reflection of the journey thus far around protecting our planet, the people around us, and the places we call home. This inaugural global report marks a significant step in our commitment to transparency, accountability, and continuous improvement in our sustainability practices.
Key highlights from the 2022 report
Our inaugural Global Sustainability Report presents a comprehensive overview of our efforts and accomplishments during 2022. Some of the key highlights include:
- A look at our sustainability journey thus far
This year’s global report serves as a continuation of all our efforts around sustainability thus far, including our previously released, EU-focused Sustainability Reports (published in 2020 and 2021.)
- SDG Focus Areas
For the 2022 edition, we’ve centered our report along the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). We’re targeting 5 focus areas: Climate Change, Water Stewardship, Resource Use, Social Responsibility, and Sustainable Innovation.
- Expanded reporting metrics
We’re proud to have expanded our reporting to include targets outlined within the Task Force on Sustainability Accounting Standards Boards (SASB), Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards.
While we are proud of the progress we’ve made, we understand that our sustainability journey is an ongoing one. As we move forward, we are committed to setting even more ambitious goals and collaborating with stakeholders to drive positive change throughout the textile industry and beyond.
The launch of our first Global Sustainability Report reflects our dedication to transparency and encourages open dialogue with our customers, partners, and stakeholders. By sharing our progress and challenges, we hope to inspire others to join us in creating a greener, safer, and more sustainable future for generations to come.
As TenCate Protective Fabrics enters this new chapter of sustainability, we invite you to explore our report and join us on this transformative journey.
