Kornit Digital has set a target of saving 4.3 trillion litres of water, and reducing overproduction in the fashion industry

The report also details how Kornit will continue to build an inclusive and diverse company culture, as well as its dedication to impacting local communities and creating safer labour practices.

In response to the report, Kornit, has continued to use an eco-friendly production process that uses technology and consumables that use less water and reduces waste. The process means the overproduction of textiles and apparel is eliminated.

Ronen Samuel, Kornit Digital’s chief executive officer, says: “Our vision is to boldly transform the world of fashion and textiles for a better, more sustainable planet.”

“The fashion industry is unfortunately responsible for severe ecological damage, producing nearly 20% of global wastewater each year and over-producing an average of 30% as an integral part of its ‘normal’ course of doing business. We are laser-focused on changing that trajectory. Sustainability is top of mind at Kornit, in our spirit and in practice, every single day.”

Our vision is to boldly transform the world of fashion and textiles for a better, more sustainable planet.

A study by the company conducted on two of their flagship products: the Kornit Atlas MAX and Kornit Presto S found that the digital systems used up to 95% less water, and 94% less energy compared to traditional analogue processes.

The study and previous sustainability performances mean Kornit is expected to produce approximately 2.5 billion pieces of apparel by 2026.

Samuel adds: “This report holds us accountable to our vision of providing the efficient, conscientious, uncompromising on-demand capabilities our stakeholders, employees, customers, and the global marketplace demand.”

Kornit’s objectives from the study and report are to reach zero overproduction and water waste, as well as reduce C02 emissions by preventing an estimated 17.2 billion kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions.
