address. DyStar has set an optimistic target of reducing environmental impacts in these four areas by 20 % by the year 2020, with a 2 % annual reduction of the impacts. A compliance management system coordinates and supports employees to help in accordance with the company s core values and Code of Conduct and Social Accountability. DyStar has implemented a companywide sustainability initiative, the Caring for the Future program. Sustainability councils have been formed as part of these initiatives to identify opportunities for reductions and to enhance sus- tainability performance with local, regional, and international expertise. DyStar has released an annual sustainability report since 2010 in compliance with the Global Reporting Initiative Guidelines. DyStar also has published a carbon footprint report annually since 2011, in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. DyStar manufactures dyes and chemicals that are engineered to meet legislation such as REACH, voluntary regulations such as Oeko-Tex, or any of the Restricted Substances List of well-known brands and retailers. DyStar is committed to man- ufacturing products with an eco-clean pro fi le, which shortens production time, decreases the use of water and energy, and provides improved color consistency with a right-the- fi rst-time approach. DyStar Textile Services supports the brands, retailers, and their industry partners with fast and innovative global solutions to create sustainable fashion. Color Solutions International (CSI) brings the most environmentally friendly and cost- effective solutions into the market and facilitates sustainable fashion. The CSI program includes ColorWall products, approximately 4,000 readymade colors that are updated regularly with the inspirations to provide trend-aligned colors. They are used from design to development and production, thus eliminating costlier and wasteful processes of laboratory trials and color approvals. Some of the sustainable products in the DyStar line are Leva fi x, a reactive dye with high fi xation levels for cotton textiles; Remazol Ultra RGB reactive dyes (low- impact dyes) for deep shades on cotton; Dianix green range, dispersed dyed polyester textiles that meet the stringent requirements of brands and retailers; Sera Zyme C-PE, which substitutes the conventional scouring with a bio-scouring process, thus providing less process time (7.3 %), less water usage (15.9 %), less electricity consumption (11.3 %), and less steam consumption (19.6 %); Sera Gal G-RFX and Remazol Ultra RGB, which allow the scouring and dyeing processes to be combined, with 38 % less processing time, 24 % less water, 28 % less electricity, and 38 % less steam. DyStar s Sustainable Textile Solutions (STS) is a team of experts that guides the textile manufacturing units to optimize production, water and energy, and use of chemicals, while reducing the cost and delivering a similar or better quality of goods, as required through consultancy, auditing, and capacity building. The STS team also supports the brands and retailers in their efforts to develop, implement,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
