25 March 2019

Leading the sector with its environment-friendly, clean production-oriented and sustainable business model, Yünsa continues to support sustainability with its projects aiming to use standards and natural resources efficiently.

Yünsa added another one to its achievements in the field of sustainability and has been granted with the Award for Sustainability Commitment at the 2019 Supplier Summit held on 15th of March and organized by the clothing giant H&M which Yünsa is cooperating with since 2007.

Yünsa General Manager Nuri Düzgören emphasized that Yünsa applies sustainability in all business processes as the company’s basic principle: “In 2018, when the sector had faced a contraction, we, at Yünsa, resolutely continued with our investments in sustainability.  As H&M’s RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) certified supplier, this award indicates the success of the good works we have performed.

Yünsa has a Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certificate, which observes animal welfare and good management of the land, which the animals graze on, starting from the farms where sheep are being kept until it reaches the end-user. With Yünsa’s Global Recycled Standard (GRS) and Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) certificates, the recycled materials used in the final products are being monitored and verified throughout the supply chain.
