NILIT, a global leader in high-quality Nylon 6.6 for apparel and owner of the SENSIL sustainable brand, has teamed up with The Ocean Foundation’s Blue Resilience Initiative to reestablish and safeguard essential ocean meadows and other coastal habitats. These marine grasslands, which are being damaged at a rate of two football fields every hour, are vital ecosystems for sequestering CO2 from the atmosphere to reduce global warming and ocean acidification. In addition, ocean grasslands sustain sea life, defend coast lines against erosion and storm surge, and support economies around the world.
Reducing CO2 and protecting oceans are both important factors in NILIT’s multifaceted Total Product Sustainability program. The company implemented clean energy technologies at its manufacturing plants around the world. At its main facility in Israel, CO2 emissions were reduced by 40 percent. NILIT has designed the largest portfolio of sustainable premium nylon products under its SENSIL consumer brand including innovative products that specifically address reduced greenhouse gas emissions and ecosystem effects.
