Unifi's REPREVE® Meets SCS Responsible Source™ Standard

Greensboro, N.C.-based Unifi Inc.'s REPREVE® pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled-content fiber products have earned Responsible Source™ certification from Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Global Services, Emeryville, Calif.

Unifi is the first yarn manufacturer to be certified to the Responsible Source standard, which addresses textile sector supply chain and manufacturing issues related to the production of undyed recycled chips, pellets and manufactured fibers.

Repreve fiber is produced at the Repreve Recyling Center in Yadkinville, N.C. The company monitors its energy and water consumption, water discharges, air emissions and hazardous waste disposal; employs traceability mechanisms; and maintains strong relationships with its vendors and suppliers. The Responsible Source certification process involved evaluation of Unifi's environmental performance in eight main impact categories. The company also established a framework for screening suppliers to assess risk throughout its supply chain.
