Making people's lives better

An overview of all the CSR-related things we do. They show how a concerted focus on CSR benefit both the company and the communities in which we operate. We believe deeply in this potential of shared value for all our stakeholders, whether they are employees, suppliers, clients, governments, shareholders, partners, local communities, or society as a whole.

Fabrics for reef protection

There's care needed to preserve and protect coral reefs during dredging activities. We produce fabrics that are used to protect the reef from mud and blown sand. The first type of fabric serves as a curtain, the latter keeps these curtains affloat.

How today's products become tomorrows raw materials

We’re reclaiming raw materials from waste. This offers both environmental and economic benefits. Today’s products become tomorrow’s raw materials.

Recycling options for coated technical textiles

Our coated technical textiles can easily be repaired and often have second and even third lives. At the end of life, there are several recycling options.

Control 75% of value chain

We manage 75% of the entire industrial value chain, from yarn to finished product. This allows us to check the quality and durability regularly and to make improvements on a regular basis. We can also respond quickly to customer needs.

ISO 50001

Dimension-Polyant, part of the Sioen Group, is compliant with the ISO 50001 standards.

Textiles for desludging and dewatering

We produce coated textiles and geotextiles for removing fine sediments from sites and for dewatering of waste water and sludge water. Our range includes wovens, scrims, nonwovens, films, sheets and coated textiles for industrial sanitation.

Waterfront event

We contributed to the Waterfront event to commemorate the victims who lost their lives in the spring of 1918. The fabric of the boats and cutting them into DIY kits is a Sioen realisation. The boats had messages of peace on the sails.

Green sensibilisation in our company

A project is running at Sioen headquarters to make our people aware of the sustainability initiatives running in the offices and meeting rooms. From things such as light sensors to brewing our own sparkling water, this photo reportage makes it clear.

Biobased and biodegradable

Sioen’s R&D team searches for biobased and biodegradable solutions and takes part in a range of EU projects.

Seaweed cultivation

Our R&D team is actively looking for sustainable aquaculture solutions. As part of the EU AT~SEA project, Sioen developed textile mats and nets on which seaweed can be cultivated. The fabric has been deployed and tested in Norway and Ireland.

Carbon footprint

Sioen calculates its carbon footprint annually to see where things can be improved and how we can reduce our footprint.
