Developing Sustainability Impact Report for ISKO

Our goal is to create fabrics that perform exceptionally and last longer whilst using fewer resources. We work hard every day to improve ourselves, to be better and do better–this is what Responsible Innovation means to us: never settle, but always strive for improvement.”

Ebru Ozkucuk Guler – Sustainability and CSR Executive, ISKO


One of the world’s leading denim producers ISKO was looking to develop its first sustainability report. As well as outlining the company’s ambitious targets, the company wanted to demonstrate its commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), International Labour Standards (ILO) and industry partners.

ISKO is part of SANKO TEKSTIL, the textile division of the SANKO Group. As the premium denim ingredient brand behind people’s favourite jeans, ISKO has a strong global presence.

Through ISKO’s Responsible Innovation™ approach, which is founded on creativity, competence and citizenship, the company wanted to showcase its work to manage its environmental and social impact within this report. This has led to many achievements, including bluesign® Partnership, STeP by OEKO-TEX®, Textile Exchange, SAC, ZDHC, and EU Ecolabel, detailed in the report.


Anthesis engaged stakeholders on data collection with ISKO supply chain and factories to develop strategies with ISKO’s targets and formalising sustainability aspirations.
