World Emblem Sustainability

A sustainability and socially responsibility are important components for the value of our brand. At World Emblem we are actively looking for ways to improve efficiencies while continuing our customer promise of quality and fast turn times. We are forward thinkers about your needs and the environment.  Our main three pillars to deliver on this promise are Energy, Clean Threads and Recycling. We partner with textile providers who believe and are committed to our vision. We evaluate yearly and continue to implement solutions to have a resource-saving textile production.



At World Emblem, we have made the change
from fluorescent light to LEDs. The production
floor is 85% LED lighting, while the offices are
75% LEDs. The average electricity consumption
changed from 75 Watts to 35 Watts. 

Other electricity measures we are woking to implement:

  • Solar panel installation. To cover energy
    requirements, we will use 10,000 sq. of solar panels.
    The total investment will cost $500,000. Currently
    the team is working on a project for this to be
    financed by external company.
  • Translucid roof panel installation. This will reduce
    the need for electricity during the day, since these
    panels will allow for more outside light.



Our Madeira premium threads are pollutant-free,
certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®,
come from ISO-approved processes, are free from
APO/ PE plasticisers and thus meet the requirements
of many global brands. 

The certification according to STANDARD 100 by
OEKO-TEX® is considered one of the most important
seals of approval for textiles. Almost all Madeira threads
are equipped with this seal. It is subdivided into different
product classes. In the highest classification, product class
I (suitability for baby items), Madeira offers viscose and
polyester as well as cotton mix and metallic threads.

At World Emblem, we recycle the following materials:

  • Paper / Cardboard (from boxes)
  • Wood (from pallets)
  • Plastic (from thread cones)
  • Metal – aluminum, bronze (Flexstyle dies) & steel.

All our scrap material, which has polyester fabric laminated with urethane, can’t be recycled. Instead of sending it to garbage sites, we dispose of it the following way:

  • We send it to a local cement company. This material is burned to produce heat in their furnaces and oven (previously tests were made to insure no toxic emissions were generated)
