What is polyester?
By definition, the term “polyester” covers a group of polymers (set of molecules) used particularly in textile manufacturing.
Made from (non energy) petroleum-derived chemicals, polyester is used in several of our manufacturing processes, particularly textiles and heavy stitching. The CO2 impact of this material is significant, and its manufacture contributes to the depletion of resources. It’s important we strive for independence from fossil fuels, anticipate potential future regulations, and respond to sports users’ environmental concerns, while continuing to innovate through our choice of manufacturing and recycling processes and circular economy procedures.
