Sustainability Mission

We prioritize the preservation of natural resources and strive to maintain an ecological balance. Our commitment to the environment is deeply ingrained in our personal and business philosophy. We take various measures to minimize resource wastage and invest in eco-friendly infrastructure. Matrix has implemented numerous sustainability initiatives to reduce our environmental impact. These include efforts to reduce or eliminate single-use plastics, support renewable energy projects, conserve water, control air pollution, use organic cotton, and incorporate recycled materials in our products. We are actively working towards improving our Higg Index score, which assesses our sustainability performance. Furthermore, we have set a target to meet 50% of our energy requirements from renewable sources starting in April 2023, reaffirming our dedication to renewable energy.

  • Matrix primarily uses PNG (Piped Natural Gas) as fuel for boilers, laundry tumblers, and gensets for electricity backup.

  • To minimize emissions, special scrubbers and pollutant filters have been installed on all boilers, ensuring that the emission levels are well below the prescribed government norms. The emission readings are provided online to the environmental pollution control authorities in real-time.

  • Furthermore, all production facilities are registered with the HIGG Facility Environment Module (FEM), indicating our commitment to environmental sustainability and transparency in our operations.

  • In our laundries, we have installed special spray wash machines that consume 80% less water and 66% fewer chemicals during the garment washing process. This helps us reduce water usage and minimize the environmental impact associated with chemical usage.


Solar energy has gained significant popularity among businesses aiming to reduce their carbon footprint and minimize reliance on traditional energy sources. In December 2015, Matrix took a significant step towards sustainable energy by commissioning its own solar power generation through rooftop installations across all buildings on the campus. These solar installations have a capacity of 707 KWP and generate approximately 0.72 million units of clean energy per year. This initiative showcases Matrix's commitment to environmental responsibility and renewable energy adoption.

Rain Water Harvesting

In recent years, the significance of rainwater harvesting has grown due to the increasing concern over water scarcity in various parts of the world. Recognizing the importance of this practice, Matrix took the lead by becoming the first factory in the area to install rainwater harvesting on its campus. As part of the campus redevelopment, the rainwater harvesting system was further upgraded, and Matrix now boasts four rainwater harvesting pits with a total holding capacity of 1,53,500 liters. These pits are designed to reach a depth of 250 feet, effectively recharging the water table and contributing to sustainable water management practices.

Wind Energy

For more than a century, the conversion of the movement of large air masses into electrical energy has been a remarkable achievement. Wind power, in particular, has emerged as a key player in the global energy transition and the widespread adoption of green energy sources. With its ability to harness the power of wind, wind power possesses all the essential elements needed to contribute significantly to a sustainable and renewable energy future.Matrix demonstrates its commitment to the renewable energy initiative by owning and operating two wind turbines in Gujarat, Western India. Each installation has a capacity of 650 KW, totaling 1.30 MW. These turbines contribute significantly to the renewable energy landscape by supplying 2 million units of electricity to the Gujarat Electricity Board, making a positive impact on the region's energy consumption and reducing carbon emissions.

Recycled Yarn

An Eco Friendly Initiative

Recycled Synthetic and Cotton Fibres:

The Recycled part can be synthetic , cotton or both fibres. Currently fabrics made with recycled yarns being offered by Matrix are with max 30% recycled synthetic fibres (polyester) and remaining parts in the blend being virgin fibres.

Organic Cotton :

Matrix has been manufacturing garments with organic cotton fabrics for many years, in partnership with some of our key customers.

Recycled Polyester :

For several years, Matrix has been producing garments using recycled polyester for some of our environmentally conscious brands.

Recycled Cotton :

A significant percentage of the fabrics we use at Matrix goes to waste as shaping waste and sewing scrap. While we have made efforts to responsibly dispose of this waste by sending it to Rag Dhurrie manufacturers in North India, we have recently initiated a partnership with one of India's leading Yarn Mills. Through this collaboration, we return our production waste to them for shredding and reduction into fibers, which can then be blended with fresh cotton (up to 30%).

As part of our sustainability efforts, we will soon introduce fabrics made with recycled cotton yarns. These fabrics will contain a minimum of 30% recycled cotton and 70% virgin fibers, meeting the requirements for GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certification of recycled yarns. The yarn count range for these fabrics will be Ne 20 - Ne 30s.

The Matrix “Time’s up” Initiative

On Oct 2nd, 2019 on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Birth Anniversary, Matrix launched some key projects including reduction/elimination of Single Use Plastics

  • Incoming fabric rolls are now being packed in reusable packaging instead of poly sheets.
  • The movement of materials within the factory has transitioned from poly bags to reusable fabric bags.
  • Collaboration with customers is underway to explore the use of environmentally friendly biodegradable bags for packaging finished products.
  • Continual assessment of plastic usage on campus is being conducted to identify and recommend more environmentally friendly alternatives.
