Kornit Digital Ltd. – a leader in providing digital textile printing technology – has for the first time released its 2020 Impact and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report.
This inaugural report affirms Kornit’s commitment to achieving specific ESG goals. This includes the way Kornit conducts business, creates meaningful impact in local communities and achieves environmental sustainability, in addition to how Kornit will continue to build a diverse and inclusive company culture, foster employee growth and development and empower fair and safe labour practices globally.
Ronen Samuel, CEO, Kornit Digital, commented, “Our vision is to boldly transform the world of fashion and textiles for a better, more sustainable planet. This report serves as our roadmap to achieving this vision.”
Ronen further said that the fashion industry is unfortunately responsible for severe ecological damage, producing nearly 20 per cent of global wastewater each year and over-producing an average of 30 per cent as an integral part of its ‘normal’ course of doing business.
According to the company, a 2021 Life Cycle Assessment conducted on two flagship products, the Kornit Atlas MAX and Kornit Presto S, demonstrated that relative to traditional analog processes, Kornit’s digital production systems used up to 95 per cent less water and 94 per cent less energy.
These systems produced up to 83 per cent less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the Presto S system and up to 93 per cent less water and 66 per cent less energy, and produced up to 82 per cent less GHG emissions for the Atlas MAX system.

This report holds us accountable to our vision of providing the efficient, conscientious, uncompromising on-demand capabilities our stakeholders, employees, customers and the global marketplace demand. These KPIs reflect Kornit’s core values, embedded into every aspect of our business,” concluded Ronen.
