We encourage our creative, highly experienced and energetic team to continuously improve and challenge the existing whilst developing the new to excite and lead the market. ABMT Australia believes that the environment does not have to be sacrificed for quality. Our ambition is to create quality products with minimal environmental impact; by promoting responsible farming, cleaner manufacturing and utilizing the wonderful benefits of sustainable natural fibres.
ABMT Australia is proud of its record in significantly lowering the environmental impact normally associated with textile manufacturing and also for our use of sustainable products and practices. Cleaner production measures were incorporated into the original design of the Australian plant. Ongoing projects are always taking place to reduce electricity, gas and water usage.
With a full on-site 5 stage water treatment plant, up to 85% of ABMT water is able to be reused, either back through the manufacturing process or via 3rd party recycled water programs for agriculture parklands and industry.

.GLOBAL GOALS.

COMPANY OBJECTIVES 2019/2020

 

 

Goal 11

Cities are lively hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity and much more. But they face many challenges such as pollution, lack of basic services for many citizens, and declining infrastructure. Our cities and villages need to be clean and safe cities, with good housing and basic services like water and electricity. They also need clean transport systems and green areas that everyone can enjoy.

Goal 12 wants to make us think twice about the things we use, the waste we create, and how that impacts the planet. Changing our behaviour towards more sustainable actions such as recycling really makes a difference when everyone -that includes individuals, companies, government - contributes.

Goal 14

is about protecting the oceans, seas and all its species. Why?

Because oceans provide food, medicines, biofuels and jobs for millions of people. Keeping healthy oceans also helps us address climate change. We need healthy oceans, and they need us to protect them!
