Sustainability in Action
Huntsman Textile Effects runs an annual 'Sustainability in Action' program to support World Environment Day and reinforce our 'we see a better world' focus. This company-wide effort spans the globe to promote environmental sustainability through community activities.
In 2014, Huntsman Textile Effects mobilized more than a quarter of its 3,000 associates at major facilities in eight countries. Clocking over 1,500 hours, these local Huntsman Textile Effects teams organized and conducted a range of activities, including:
Tree planting in Atoto, Mexico; Baroda, India; Bogota, Columbia; Guatemala City, Guatemala; Istanbul, Turkey and Mahachai, Thailand
Hazardous household waste collection and safe disposal drives in Atoto and Bogota
Recycling initiatives in Guatemala City, Istanbul and Singapore
Community education programs in Baroda, Bogota, Istanbul and Panyu
The 2014 Sustainability in Action program included in-house workshops and sustainability programs and a global Bring Your Own Bag (BYOB) initiative. More than 3,000 sustainable canvas bags were distributed to Huntsman Textile Effects associates and contractors worldwide after a global poll to select a bag design.
