Active Apparel Group targets decarbonization, tackles scope 3 emissions


In a decisive move towards sustainability, Active Apparel Group (AAG), a leading manufacturer of activewear and swimwear, has announced the implementation of an Environmental Management System (EMS) aimed at reducing its environmental impact globally. The EMS, developed following the ISO14001 Standard Framework, outlines specific targets and strategies to minimize carbon footprint across AAG's operations in China, Australia, and the USA.

A recent third-party audit of AAG's greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) identified several focal points for reduction, including decreased energy use (Scope 1), minimized air freight, water conservation, efficient management of production waste, and increased utilization of sustainable materials. Daniel Hawker, CEO of AAG, emphasized the company's commitment to setting measurable goals in reducing their carbon footprint, acknowledging the significant emissions within the fashion industry's supply chain.

AAG's EMS is deeply integrated into its business operations, with clear ownership of targets and continuous education of its team members to ensure tangible results in reducing environmental impact. Quarterly progress reports are shared with stakeholders and reviewed by the Board of Directors, underlining AAG's transparency and accountability in its sustainability efforts.

This initiative forms part of AAG's broader Responsible Business Strategy, encompassing governance, social responsibility, and environmental impact. Alongside the EMS, AAG actively engages in various initiatives such as living wage audits, supply chain traceability projects, and waste management programs, reinforcing its commitment to driving sustainable practices throughout its operations.
