ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OUR INDUSTRY IS FACING.
The first pillar of our Lynka Cares program is to reduce the overall environmental impact of our activities. We have been proactive in our eco-friendly practices and policies since our early days, and continue to make positive strides year-after-year. Our environmental activities can be broadly categorized in these three areas:
Printing & Operations. Printing and embellishment using more eco-friendly inks, materials and technologies, plus making our overall operations more environmentally sustainable.
Packaging & Logistics. Finding alternative solutions that leave a lighter carbon footprint than the industry’s historical ones. Using packaging sources that support sustainable forest management.
Products & Fabrics. Sourcing and supplying more garments made from organic, recycled and other sustainable fabrics is the clear route forward. Reconsidering the entire supply-chain, including the countries in which we manufacture garments.
As one of Europe’s largest and most well-established garment suppliers and decorators, since our early days, Lynka has always out-performed the standards for emissions, waste-water and other pollutants. We use safer, more expensive, imported equipment and chemicals. We were one of the first printers in Central Europe to create an eco-friendly screen department with screen wash / reclaiming system which introduced eco-friendly solvents from the USA and Sweden. We were one of the first CEE promo apparel suppliers to receive WRAP certification, which includes environmental requirements.
