Eurojersey is a leading Italian producer of warp-knit fabrics range named Sensitive®. The fabric is used in the lingerie, swimwear and sports sector and sold internationally. Since January 2010, Eurojersey has donated funds to purchase and protect one metre of rainforest for every metre of Sensitive® fabric sold.
The Eurojersey operations strive to be as environmentally responsible as possible and this ethic involves all their 189 staff working for the SensitivEcoSystem® programme in their Milan factory in Italy. Training in safety and environmental issues has enabled them to attain record results in the whole production cycle, recovery of recyclable materials and the elimination of energy waste. “The concerns of everyone involved about environmental conditions have been the main factor in turning awareness into a shared ethical behaviour, in relation to both the work tasks performed and everybody’s private life,” said Andrea Crespi, Chief Executive of Eurojersey.

As the producers of Sensitive® Fabrics Eurojersey is also introducing WLT to some of its customers who, in turn, it is hoped will support WLT themselves. WLT is funding the purchase and protection of critically threatened Atlantic Rainforests in Misiones Province in Argentina, on behalf of Eurojersey.
