APR Sustainability Dashboard goes Live

At Asia Pacific Rayon we understand that sustainability does not work without transparency; both are necessary for continuous improvement in responsible manufacturing. As a result of our commitment to become the most responsible viscose manufacturer, we are making transparent our critical sustainability performance indicators on our sustainability dashboard. The indicators were chosen with care, considering not only what is required by internationally recognised standards but also our commitments and core values. The dashboard focuses on pulp sourcing, responsible manufacturing and programmes to support our people and communities.

Our pulp sourcing conforms to our commitments made in our pulp sourcing policy that only 100% certified and traceable pulp is used in the manufacturing of our viscose fibre. On responsible manufacturing, our focus is on monitoring and tracking input consumption, chemical recovery rates and emissions parameters. These indicators are aligned with internationally acceptable standards and guidelines like EU BAT.
