Elevate Textiles has become a member of Textile Exchange, an organization that drives positive impact on climate change across the textile and fashion industries. Elevate and its brands including American & Efird (A&E), Burlington, Cone Denim, Gütermann, and Safety Components will utilize this membership to accelerate and further expand upon their adoption of preferred fibers.
Global non-profit organization Textile Exchange, O’Donnell, TX/USA, guides brands, manufacturers, and farmers towards more purposeful production starting at the source, i.e. raw materials and fibers. Its goal is to help the industry achieve a 45% reduction in the emissions that come from producing fibers and raw materials by 2030, speeding up the adoption of practices that improve positive impact in water, soil health, and biodiversity.
Elevate Textiles Inc., Charlotte, NC/USA, a global provider of advanced, high-quality products and mission critical textile solutions, currently participates in Textile Exchange’s 2025 Recycled Polyester Challenge and is now a full member of the organization. The Challenge was launched by Textile Exchange and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action to help initiate a shift in the market towards the uptake of recycled polyester and the associated reduction in greenhouse gases. This joint initiative challenges the industry to bring the percentage of recycled polyester up from 14% to 45% at 17.1 million tons by 2025.
