Dystar releases 2013 sustainability report

Written by John Mowbray

SINGAPORE – Sustainable textile auxiliaries and colorants supplier, DyStar, has released its annual sustainability report. The report outlines how the business is making steady progress to achieving a 20 per cent reduction by 2020 of its operational impact in four areas: energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and waste generation. Dystar's report illustrates the challenges of managing a growing, successful global business with environmental impacts.

2013 saw total GHG emissions at DyStar increase by 12.83 per cent to 159,799 tCO2e compared to 2012, an increase  the company attributes to increased overall production volume and a more energy intensive product mix, including their intermediate stages.
