Sustainability

At Frontline, we are always looking for leading-edge innovations to improve our product development process, not only for our clients but for the earth.

Our Joint-Venture Development Center and denim factory in Zhuhai, China is a proud example of that quest for responsible manufacturing. In this facility, we recycle 100% of our water through an on-site, government-certified and monitored water treatment facility. This sets us apart globally as best-in-class for water usage and cleanliness, with a chemical oxygen demand (COD) output of only 50ppm, far below the average industry standard of 80 – 100 ppm.

We have also invested in laser and ozone technology to create virtually water-free washes on our products. These technologies are available on-demand to all of our clients.

We are dedicated in our mission to lessen the impact to the environment, and we are always open and researching the market for ways new ways to deliver on this commitment.
