IBMBA students had the opportunity to visit Everest Textile. Elan Gibb, an alumni from the IBMBA program, introduced us to the company and its business operations in Tainan. Everest is a textile manufacturer that develops and supplies products to brands in several different key categories of clothing, such as sports, outdoor, and casual. Through the use of its two core values of innovation and sustainability, Everest has successfully decreased its carbon footprint dramatically. Everest is a proponent of being an eco-friendly enterprise and promotes this by its Sustainability Model that is based on the 7R Discipline: Rethink, Redesign, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle, and Recovery.
