SKYPRO unveils first voluntary SME ESG report in uniform sector

By PAX International Magazine Staff

The Voluntary SME ESG report positions SKYPRO as a forerunner in sustainability reporting practices for the sector in Portugal and potentially Europe

In a move signaling a potential shift within the uniform industry, SKYPRO has launched the first Voluntary SME ESG Report, aligning itself with forthcoming EU guidelines. The report positions SKYPRO as a forerunner in sustainability reporting practices for the sector in Portugal and potentially Europe.

While many companies await the official EU Commission guidelines on SME ESG Reporting expected later this year, SKYPRO has taken a proactive stance by establishing a new benchmark for sustainability reporting within the uniform industry. The SKYPRO ESG report goes beyond simply meeting the anticipated minimum requirements. The report reflects the company's commitment to exceeding expectations by delivering the most comprehensive version required by EU about environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance.

Circular services for uniforms can reduce carbon footprint
SKYPRO's dedication to sustainability extends beyond the realm of reporting. The company offers a comprehensive suite of Circular Services for Uniforms, including repair, reuse, and recycle programs.

According to SKYPRO, its Uniform Reuse Program allows companies to reduce uniform costs by up to 60 percent per garment while minimizing environmental impact. Customers can expect to receive a report that details the positive environmental impact of their uniform choices, including information on how much reusing uniforms contributes to reducing environmental footprint.

Uniform industry anticipates regulatory shift
The uniform industry is expected to undergo significant changes as large companies grapple with upcoming regulations requiring them to account for the environmental impact of their entire value chain. This will likely push uniform suppliers to adapt practices to meet these new sustainability standards, SKYPRO says.

With the launch of its ESG report and its focus on circularity, SKYPRO is positioning itself as a leader in sustainable uniform services. The company is urging other suppliers to consider their own sustainability practices in order to prepare for the forthcoming regulatory landscape.
