Getting Adelco to Net Zero

Adelco achieves the prestigious status of being a carbon neutral organisation


A Green Milestone

Adelco is proud to announce that we have earned the prestigious carbon-neutral certificate, marking a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to sustainability. This accomplishment highlights our dedication to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting eco-friendly practices within the textile industry.

The fashion industry is estimated to be responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions – more than international flights and maritime shipping combined. By achieving carbon neutrality, Adelco is taking a proactive stance in addressing this critical issue, setting a benchmark for others in the industry to follow. Our journey towards a more sustainable future continues as we strive to innovate and implement solutions that contribute to the well-being of our planet.

According to the European Environment Agency, textile purchases in the EU in 2020 generated about 270 kg of CO2 emissions per person. This means that textile products consumed in the EU generated greenhouse gas emissions of 121 million tonnes. Adelco's commitment to carbon neutrality not only addresses these alarming statistics but also demonstrates our leadership in driving positive environmental change.
