Representatives of EDANA member companies participate in the work and activities, in line with the EDANA Sustainability Vision, of the following groups :
The Sustainability Steering Group : develops EDANA’s sustainability strategy and ensures its implementation through different Working Groups
The Circular Nonwovens Forum is specially dedicated to sustainability. This new annual forum creates a platform for an in-depth engagement with stakeholders on challenges and opportunities in the pursuit of a circular economy for nonwovens.
During its other conference and symposia, EDANA ensures sustainability is systematically integrated and prominent in the programmes. Some practical examples are listed below.
Every three years, EDANA organises INDEX™, the largest global meeting place for the nonwovens supply chain and their customers, during which a selection of excelling companies is presented with an INDEX™ Award. The awards are issued in seven different categories, two of which relate directly to sustainability: Sustainable process or management practice and sustainable product.
