Coats pioneers a sustainable future with targets for 2022

coats-the-worlds-leading-industrial-thread-companyCoats, the world’s leading industrial thread company, has published its first sustainability report, which covers key sustainability performance data for the period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018.

The report, ‘Pioneering a sustainable future’, also launches a sustainability strategy which sets out seven ambitious targets for 2022 across five priority areas in order to accelerate the company’s progress towards a more sustainable future.

The five priority areas are water, energy, effluent and emissions, social and living sustainably. Coats identified the areas by first considering the values and ethics which are most important to employees, customers and investors as well as the end consumer. These key stakeholder groups are making increasingly influential demands for action on sustainability across all markets and industries. Coats then looked at where there was the most potential for improvement in its own manufacturing and operations.
