Our commitment to sustainability
Our commitment to using renewable materials
100% natural raw materials
We make a point of using quality natural fibres cultivated in a socially and environmentally responsible way. All our products are manufactured from renewable, biodegradable fibres such as cotton or linen. We’re part of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), improving global cotton production both for the people who produce it and for the environment it grows in, to create a better future for the sector. What’s more, we’re in the process of incorporating recovered, recycled cotton into some of our products.
Our products are packaged using sustainable materials, such as FSC- and PEFC-certified cardboard. We work to guarantee that our products are delivered in packaging with a minimal environmental footprint.
Our own unique, sustainable textile technology
Our technology, based on the absence of seams, allows us to remove some steps from the production process and makes us more competitive. It also allows us to reduce our consumption of energy and raw materials. Compared to similar products, we are able to eliminate around 30% of materials, normally used for seams.
R&D & ECO
We’re always innovating to design new products and redesign classics to make them more environmentally friendly.
Our focus is on saving raw materials (fabric and thread) during the conceptualisation, design and manufacture of the final product. The smaller the product, the bigger the saving. Our unique patented seamless technology also avoids the need for hemming and reduces the use of fabric and thread.
Our production processes
As part of our quest to continually improve, we monitor our water consumption and implement measures to optimise water use. For example, we have changed the products used in the preparation of the fabric to reduce water consumption.
We use only CNMC-certified renewable energy. We’re also continually analysing energy consumption.
We conduct regular studies of our products’ carbon footprint.
We’re working to implement circular processes throughout our products’ life cycles, according to the principles of circularity.
Our environmental management
We’re committed to complying with both legal and voluntary guidelines.
We have an online system that allows us to ensure we’re legally compliant with environmental, industrial safety and occupational risk prevention standards. Our 2021-2025 Sustainability Plan sets targets for continuous improvement and lays out measures that fall within the framework of the 17 UN SDGs. We have the most restrictive environmental licence available under Spanish law and conduct a full environmental inspection every two years.
We have a co-generation plant that allows us to produce hot water and steam.
Water consumption reduction
We clean our wastewater in our own purification plant with physical, chemical and biological treatments. It then undergoes a second treatment in a municipal WWTP. We source our water from local wells and carry out water quality checks.
Control of atmospheric emissions
We carry out annual checks of our emission sources to ensure they are within regulatory limits.
Our focus is on always improving the sorting, recycling and recovery of our waste.
Certificaciones de Texia
A leading global standard that certifies textiles made with organic fibres according to strict environmental criteria.
A world-renowned system that verifies that no harmful substances are used in textiles or the manufacturing process for a given product.
The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is about improving global cotton production, both for the people who produce it and for the environment it grows in, to create a better future for the sector.
Our Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification complements our Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) certification and guarantees that textile materials are recycled in compliance with environmental and social criteria.
It reflects the growing importance of environmental management in companies’ business processes and considers leadership to be key for the Environmental Management System to work properly.
