AMANN nominated as UN sustainability and climate leader

The United Nations has nominated AMANN as one of its 50 sustainability and climate leaders, representing the textile industry.

In light of this, the UN has produced a short film for AMANN, illustrating the particular commitment of the thread manufacturer to sustainability and climate protection.

AMANN is aware of the need for greater sustainability in the textile industry and is pioneering ways to effect positive changes across the industry. Hence, AMANN entered into the UN’s Global Compact at the beginning of 2019.

Sewing thread is used in across numerous industries and can be found in all kinds of products. However, each year approximately 92 million tons of textile waste is generated around the globe, of which only a small percentage is effectively recycled, the rest is burnt or sent to landfill.
