The global challenges that drive the currently emerging sustainable businesses are growing, as the world population grows on a steep curve. Climate change, marine resource pollution and water shortage and waste issues are among the most urgent ones that also drive the forest industry's new innovation. This is also the foundation that Spinnova's innovation is built on. It is directly related to several of the United Nation's Sustainability Goals for 2030. Spinnova's cellulose-based fibre is a solution that solves many sustainability issues in the textile industry, also with other materials than cotton: polluting microplastics from man-made fibres and manufacturing processes contributing to climate change to mention a few. Production methods of new innovations are also significant from an environmental point of view. Spinnova produces the fibre in a simple, ecological process, without harmful chemicals and minimum emissions. Once commercialized, the Spinnova fibre is the most sustainable fibre in the world, both from a raw material and manufacturing process aspect.
