We understand sustainability as the responsibility to mitigate negative and create positive environmental, social and/or economic impacts caused by the activities of the nonwovens industry in close dialogue and partnership with our stakeholders.


EDANA developed a new Sustainability Vision 2030, hereby giving clear insight into the priority topics on sustainability for our industry.

The vision combines the most prominent materiality topics of the materiality matrix with key SDGs for the industry.
This results in four key areas - sustainable supply chain -  eco-efficient operations -  building trust to customers, consumers and stakeholders - developing waste and circular economy ,solutions clustering twelve materiality themes. Each key area is illustrated by a clear ambition.

The Vision aligns our industries’ priorities and as such, allows to collectively head in the same direction. It should be interpreted as a guideline rather than a rule to help our members identify their priorities and further develop their own sustainability strategy.

EDANA’s role is to facilitate interaction and join efforts towards a common industry goal on sustainability in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
