What are we committing to do?

We constantly strive to reduce our emissions, as well as the amount of water and energy we use during production. Through continuous R&D, we’re aiming to constantly enhance the performance and durability of Dyneema®, resulting in solutions that require less material, without compromising on performance and all while minimizing our environmental impact. 

The first ever bio-based HMPE fiber

As part of our commitment to use at least 60% bio-based feedstock by 2030, we have developed the world’s first ever bio-based HMPE fiber.

Certified by ISCC, bio-based Dyneema® fiber boasts the same performance, strength and durability as conventional Dyneema® while reducing our reliance on fossil fuel-based resources.
