A year ago Imperial announced a new focus and commitment to sustainability. Since that announcement, the brand has strived to introduce more environmentally friendly alternatives in all aspects of their business.
We are proud to share that we have made major progress towards our goal of moving our best-selling performance fabric used in our X210P lineup to 100% recycled polyester by the end of 2023. In fact, nearly half of our color palette is already starting to be produced in this updated fabric, with more colors being added every month. The same look, feel, performance and fit will now be produced with a more positive environmental impact.”Mike Wrightson, President of Imperial
Globally, less than half of used clothing is collected for reuse or recycling when they reach their end-of-life, leading worn (and sometimes unworn) garments to be discarded in landfill sites. This staggering statistic implicates both consumers and brands in the environmental and social consequences of fashion waste. As a brand, Imperial commits to producing more responsibly and consciously for the benefit of our planet.
Imperial has also made strides in increased energy conservation in the last year. As of January 1, 2022, approximately 25% of the power used in two of Imperial’s largest domestic decoration and USA made visor facilities is now provided by solar energy. Imperial’s energy conservation platform is to do more with less through execution of a vision that continually reduces all resources. Read more about Imperial’s commitment to sustainability here.
