FASHION VALUE CHAIN

This year, the India-based sustainable textile spinning business Usha Yarns will open a fourth plant to boost output and meet the rising demand for sustainable materials from the textile sector. Usha Yarns intends to expand circularity with retail and apparel companies that are eager to take sustainability-related actions.

In a statement, Usha Yarns said: “A circular economy brings together several elements with the goal of reimagining business paradigms. It depends on strategies that are more effective at managing natural resources and that promote human development for them to have a positive impact on social and environmental challenges. Overall, it is more long-lasting and sustainable, and the wealth is distributed more fairly.

It’s a notion that’s frequently connected to small-scale industry because achieving sustainability goals may be done most easily through local, closely supervised activities. However, the requirements of the world indicate environmental emergencies. In addition to being in the midst of a climate crisis with several real-world repercussions, our population is expanding and is projected to reach 8 billion people by the end of 2022.

The business demands that more, more immediate action be made in response to such issues. Usha Yarns makes the argument that while governments are sluggish in their decision-making as a result of recent geopolitical upheavals, the private sector, including businesses, firms, companies, and entrepreneurs, has the potential to pave the way for change. 

The circularity principles focus on how the advantages of an industrialised economy and business practises can influence the course of capitalism by recognising all possibilities that redefine growth. Many of the traditional profit-making techniques are effective, but they ignore the drawbacks of production techniques. One of the biggest threats is the fast fashion business, which pollutes and consumes an unending supply of materials, said Usha Yarns.

Based on research and high standards for quality control around the world, Usha Yarns offers a wide range of yarns manufactured through recycling technologies. The brand facilitates recycling partnerships with complete traceability, and its recycling procedure is supported by cutting-edge waste management procedures that are ethically in line with UNGC standards and SBTs targets with less effect, according to the statement.

The company’s activities for social responsibility in the areas of infrastructure, clean water sanitation, gender equality, and local education all work hand in hand with attempts to boost productivity.
