The United Nations have nominated 50 worldwide leaders in sustainability and climate protection and Amann Group is presented on behalf of the textile industry.

Sewing thread is used across a majority of industries and can be found in all kinds of products. However, each year approximately 92 million tons of textile waste is generated around the globe, of which only a small percentage is effectively recycled, with the rest ending up burned or in landfills.

Amann Group is aware of the need for greater sustainability in the textile industry and pioneering ways to effect positive change across the industry. Hence, Amann entered into the United Nations Global Compact already in the beginning of 2019.

The UN have produced a short film for each of the 50 selected companies worldwide, illustrating the particular commitment of the respective company to sustainability and climate protection. Watch the short film about the AMANN Group:
