An extract of the company’s latest sustainability achievements and vision for the future
PrimaLoft, Inc., the leader in advanced material technology, published its first Relentlessly Responsible™ Report showcasing the company’s philosophy of using innovation and performance to drive sustainability. The report highlights key achievements in recent years, with an emphasis on 2021, and gives a peek into the vision for the future of PrimaLoft. Moving forward, the company’s key focus will be the reduction of environmental impact through the continued use of recycled materials, designing for circularity, aggressive carbon reduction, and the development of technologies using non-petroleum based raw material – all while continuing to elevate the industry-leading performance of the products.
Mike Joyce, president & CEO of PrimaLoft, summarizes the company’s philosophy and vision: “Over the last five years, our cultural belief of innovation, sustainability, and performance has become a purpose statement to unleash the full potential of people, products and the planet, together in harmony. This statement acts as our true north, helping us navigate all aspects of our business. It shows itself through our sustainable approach to products, process, and materials. While no one can solve the issues facing our planet alone, every bit helps.”
In recent years, PrimaLoft has made important strides towards decarbonization through concerted efforts in all parts of the business. Some key developments and statistics include:
