In 2020, B.I.G. YARNS started the journey of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals within its core activities. Thanks to the whole team, who took the time and effort to grow in sustainability, who analyzed data, highlighted opportunities, and implemented real changes.

As a recognition of the commitment and the action plans, B.I.G. YARNS (Comines and Komen plants) have been granted the Voka Charter Sustainable Business 2021. Our sustainability journey has not ended yet. This is just the beginning.

REDcert² certified

The REDcert² standard is the new standard on the “Use of sustainable biomass for material purposes in the chemical industry.  

 

EqoBalance yarns follow the biomass balance approach, which ensures that at the very start of the supply chain, natural renewable raw materials can partially or even completely replace fossil resources in the production of polymers processed into yarns. By choosing these yarns, carpet tufters can contribute to a sustainable future through less use of fossil resources and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. 

Global Recycled Standard (GRS)

The recycled content within the yarns has been certified by Control Union for Global Recycled Standard (GRS) Certification. The GRS verifies recycled material and tracks it from the source to the final product. The GRS includes strict social, environmental, and chemical requirements.
