DyStar Joins Sustainable Appparel Coalition

Singapore-based textile dyes and chemicals manufacturer DyStar Singapore Pte Ltd has joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) — a global organization comprising apparel and footwear brands, retailers, manufacturers, nongovernmental organizations, academic experts and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and formed to promote sustainable and socially responsible practices among apparel and footwear producers and reduce the global environmental and social impacts of their products.

Through its Charlotte-based Color Solutions International business, DyStar cooperates with many SAC brand and retailer members in the development of seasonal color palettes. Through its econfidence program, the company ensures that its products comply with Restricted Substance List requirements.

DyStar also is a founding member of The Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD) and a System Partner of sustainable textile standard developer bluesign AG, both based in Switzerland; and a member of the O'Donnell, Texas-based Textile Exchange, an organization promoting the responsible expansion globally of textile sustainability and focusing particularly on organic cotton. In addition, DyStar offers a Sustainable Textile Service to brands and retailers to assist them in matters concerning chemical requirements, among other services; and provides technical expertise to its customers to assist them in finding ways to reduce water and energy consumption in their manufacturing processes.

"Our membership of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition signifies our commitment to working together with our partners in the industry to deliver systemic change in the way that textiles are manufactured globally," said Harry Dobrowolski, president, DyStar Group.
