This applies to our product range, which we are constantly expanding with sustainable products, but also to our sites around the world: As a responsible global player, we guarantee the same high standards worldwide to consistently produce in a fair, sustainable and safe manner.
Sustainable product range
In January 2020 the AMANN Group was the first sewing thread supplier worldwide to receive the CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED™ GOLD award for its new LIFECYCLE product line. Cradle to Cradle® certified products are designed for complete composting or recycling of single materials and enable a consistent closed loop recycling management, where no waste is generated. The AMANN sewing and embroidery threads from the RECYCLED line are made from 100% recycled materials.

We live sustainability since 1854
Ecological, social thinking and acting is embedded in the company's DNA. Sustainability, according to the current definition, is a recurring theme in our corporate philosophy. Beyond the legal requirements, we are also bound by the standards of our Code of Conduct, which defines fundamental, ethical principles of conduct. These principles of conduct determine the decisions and actions taken by management and employees in our daily business, and they also apply to our suppliers and partners. Our goal is to achieve a maximum sustainable and efficient production. An important step on the way to this goal is the timely reduction of resource consumption in production as well as the development of new environmentally friendly and intelligent yarns.
Commitment of the AMANN Group to the precepts of the UN Global Compact
AMANN has made a conscious decision to enter into the UN Global Compact. It is our ambition not only to be a pioneer in terms of high-quality, sophisticated products, but also in activities in the spirit of sustainability. With the successful development of innovative threads and yarns, we are actively contributing towards protecting the environment and resources for future generations. Social equality and environmental change go hand in hand with this. That's why we consider the recognition of international standards to be a matter of course.
