Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

CARY - INDA has announced a series of new sustainability initiatives which it says will centre around three core pillars that are crucial to the future of the nonwovens industry.

This strategic initiative, backed by resounding support from INDA’s leadership, is a direct response to feedback from association members affirming that sustainability remains one of the industry’s highest priorities.

The three core pillars under focus are: Responsible Sourcing, End-of-Life Solutions, and Innovations in Sustainability, all of which will be covered by a series of new and enhanced offerings from INDA. These include:

  • Specific webinars addressing sustainability issues impacting members and the industry.
  • Specialised technical and government affairs committees enabling members to collaborate on sustainability opportunities and challenges.
  • The inaugural release of a comprehensive sustainability report from INDA’s Market Intelligence department.
  • A dedicated sustainability special edition of the International Fiber Journal, produced by INDA Media.
  • Significantly enriched sustainability programming at INDA events, including a dedicated focus at the IDEA 2025 conference.

Announcing the new initiatives, INDA president Tony Fragnito said: “INDA member companies are at the forefront of innovation, actively investing in research and development to pioneer eco-friendly materials, explore alternative production processes, and integrate recycled and biodegradable materials, all while advancing circularity.

“This heightened emphasis on sustainability resonates with the nonwovens industry's dedication to minimising environmental impact, and underscores INDA's commitment to driving positive change within the industry to meet evolving member and customer desire for minimising environmental impact.”

Ongoing efforts will also continue to evolve and expand, with a strategic emphasis on amplifying influence and fostering relationships with stakeholders beyond the industry's confines, Fragnito added, confirming that the organisation anticipates close collaboration with its members and welcomes their feedback on how the association can serve the needs of the industry on this important topic.
