SUSTAINABILITY NEWS UPDATE:
At JBS Textile Group transparency, openness, and orderliness in the way we do things are key elements of our approach to responsible production of textiles. Through our commitment to sustainability, we believe that we can be a driving force in setting new standards for how clothing is made – across the entire value chain. This also include the procurement of our raw materials, fabrics and our paper, paperboard and packaging.
Protecting Ancient and Endangered Forests is an essential part of protecting the world’s limited forest resource and wildlife. Forests are capturing large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere, provide habitats for animals and livelihoods for humans, protect soil erosion, and are thereby a major contributor to reducing climate change.
We have partnered with the CanopyStyle and Pack4Good initiatives, to ensure that our fabrics and packaging don’t come at the expense of the world’s Ancient and Endangered Forests. Through these partnerships, we want to be forward-thinking and shift to smarter, eco-friendly alternatives to forest products.

For more than 80 years, we have been producing underwear – always with a quality-first mindset.
Great quality and long-lasting products that has to be replaced less frequently, means less waste, less energy consumption and less pollution, and are therefore the more sustainable choice.
For us, quality is not just about great craftmanship. It is much more than that. A quality product must be long-lasting, it must be comfortable to wear, it must be made with the best and most sustainable materials possible, it must be made with respect for people and the environment, and it must be made without the use of toxic chemicals. That is the quality-first mindset of JBS.
It is a fact that the textile industry, of which we are a part, has a negative effect on the environment and has serious issues regarding human – and labour rights. JBS want to become part of the solution to change the industry. We are aware of the enormous task that lie ahead, but we have embarked on the journey, and we are confident that we will reach the goal, in close cooperation with the partners in our supply chain, and the industry as a whole.
