Kornit Digital Ltd., a worldwide leader in sustainable, on-demand digital fashion and textile production technologies, recently published what it describes as its “Impact Report” for 2021. Highlighting the company’s performance with respect to a number of environmental and equity goals it has set for itself, the report quantifies Kornit’s progress in what it describes as its long-term strategy to make fashion and textiles that much more equitable and sustainable. Specific initiatives looked at in the report include those in the areas of climate action, waste management, green chemistry and diversity in the workplace, to name a few.
“Innovation is key to our sustainability efforts, including how we develop our systems and inks, deliver software and services, and engage our employees and communities,” Kornit’s chief marketing officer, Omer Kulka, said. “This second annual report highlights our steadfast commitment to being a leader in fostering a global community—bringing together employees, customers and partners—that is both ethical and accountable for creating a more sustainable industry and future.”
According to the report, over the past year Kornit, which is based in Rosh HaAyin, Israel, and has offices in Europe, Asia and the United States, realized a 16 percent reduction in greenhouse gas, or GHG, emissions intensity; a 39 percent reduction in the amount of hazard waste it produces; and a 57 reduction in non-hazardous waste intensity.
Other accomplishments include the complete elimination of Acute Toxic Amines from its processes and a 20 percent reduction in the VOC level of its Robusto Inkset. In the area of diversity and inclusion, the company has increased the number of women it has in management positions from 30 percent to 35 percent. Long-term, Kornit is working to reduce its GHG emission intensity by 75 percent by 2030 and achieve full gender pay parity within the company by 2025.
“Since our founding in 2002, Kornit has dedicated itself to creating lasting change in our industry,” Kulka said. “Our renewed impact strategy further holds us accountable to that vision. In addition to our efforts to reduce our overall environmental impact, we’re focused on the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone using our products; improving the lives of our people in the workplace; and positively contributing to the industry and society. While we believe progress has been made, we know there’s more work to be done, and we look forward to driving positive change for our business, our industry, and the ecosystem at large.”
