A consortium of seven companies which includes Mitsubishi Corp, Indorama Ventures and Goldwin has jointly established a supply chain for more sustainable polyester fibre to supply The North Face in Japan.

The project involves the manufacture of polyester fibre using renewable and bio-based materials as well as materials produced via carbon capture and utilisation (CCU para-xylene) instead of fossil fuels.

Goldwin will use the polyester fibre produced from the project for products supplied to The North Face after which the launch of further products and brands of Goldwin will be considered.

As well as Goldwin who is the project owner, the project parties include Mitsubishi Corporation, Chiyoda Corporation (all three from Japan), SK geo-centric (South Korea), Indorama Ventures (Thailand), India Glycols (India) and Neste (Finland).

The seven companies ensure credible traceability of material streams throughout the supply chain and will jointly continue to proactively promote the de-fossilisation of materials to contribute to a more sustainable society.

Earlier this year Goldwin announced it had joined “The Fashion Pact,” in a bid to help resolve the issue of climate change and improve the global environment.
