Circular deal #16: Schijvens makes clothes without wasting a single thread

News item -

The textile trade is one of the worst global industrial polluters. Schijvens Corporate Fashion is contributing to a sustainable solution by using 50% recycled workwear and 50% reused plastic to make corporate clothing. Its production is fully circular. Schijvens is ‘Circular deal #16’ in our campaign about circularity.

ABN AMRO has launched this campaign to draw attention to the circular economy. Central to the campaign are the circular deals that will help our clients make their circular business models and ambitions a reality. In 2017, we committed to concluding 100 circular deals this year. Schijvens is one of the clients we’re spotlighting. Watch the campaign video and learn all about their circular story.

Why a campaign about circularity?

The coronavirus crisis has shown just how vulnerable our world is and how important it is to take good care of our sources of energy and raw materials. We must buy less and throw away less. Travel less and fly less. And use more local products. The crisis has made us look at consumer behaviour through a different lens. ABN AMRO is running the campaign this summer to draw attention to these developments.
