Radici Yarn Receives UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Certification

Italy-based Radici Yarn SpA – a manufacturer of nylon 6 and 6,6 partially-oriented yarn (POY),
fully-oriented yarn (FOY) and fully-drawn yarn (FDY); and part of RadiciGroup’s Fibres business –
has achieved UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 certification for the environmental management system at its
Villa d’Ogna and Pistoia manufacturing facilities.

Milan-based Certitex S.r.l. – a third-party certification organization for the textile and
apparel industry – awarded certification to the plants after assessing the processes of
polymerization, POY, FOY and staple fiber spinning and masterbatch production at the Villa d’Ogna
facility and the 6,6 POY spinning process at the Pistoia facility. Certitex also verified the
sorting, packaging and shipping processes at both sites.

“We want to make a tangible contribution to the safeguarding and improvement of our
environment and the use of its natural resources, while ensuring the total sustainability of the
Group’s manufacturing activities,” said Oscar Novali, managing director, Radici Yarn. “We are
committed to environmental protection and pollution prevention and they are fundamental components
of our business management system.”
