FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - January 25, 2010) - Valley Forge Fabrics, Inc., the leader in sustainable textiles for hospitality, today achieved an industry breakthrough in transparency by announcing the results of a 360° Green Audit of the company conducted by MindClick SGM. Valley Forge, already known for its award winning FRESH fabric collections including LIVING FRESH Bedding with Tencel+Plus™ Lyocell, looked to MindClick SGM for the next step in their sustainability evolution.

Going beyond the limitations of traditional sustainability evaluations which measure energy, water and waste only, Valley Forge Fabrics turned to MindClick SGM for a comprehensive assessment including product sustainability, corporate social responsibility and core business performance.

Earning one of the highest scores ever issued by MindClick SGM, Valley Forge achieved an overall score of 3.90 out of a possible 5.00 -- reflecting the strong sustainability performance of their products and outstanding evaluations from their customers.

Created through a 360° Green Audit that includes direct customer feedback, the Sustainability Scorecard provides Valley Forge with meaningful performance measurement critical to driving business growth and product development.

"While we are thrilled with our initial score, we realize there is always room for improvement with regard to sustainability initiatives," said Diana Dobin, Senior Vice President of Valley Forge. "The MindClick SGM Sustainability Scorecard has helped us determine how to focus our sustainability efforts in ways that are of greatest value to our stakeholders.
