Our commitment to the environment
Tessilfibre has embraced a sustainability approach based on three key
factors: reducing environmental impact, sustainability of the production chain and increasing environmental awareness. We aim at fully satisfy the needs of the present generation without compromising the opportunities of future ones.
A few years ago, the Detox Campaign was conceived in order to encourage
big fashion brands to cooperate with their suppliers towards a sustainable
production chain. The main purpose is to remove extremely polluting materials and substances that are toxic for the human being from clothes.
The three core values at Tessilfibre are social commitment, attention to the environmental sustainability and ethical conduct.
Energy efficiency and sustainable development due to green energies have been the very first challenges Tessilfibre took on. In fact, we has always wanted to enhance our commitment to the environment.
That is why, back in February 2018, we signed the so-called Detox
commitment by Greenpeace. It included an improved sustainability
program, i.e. attention to the environment and respect for workers and
clients’ health, all of this achieved thanks to our high qualitative products.
As explained on RWS website, “the Responsible Wool Standard is an independent and voluntary standard. On farms, the certification makes sure that sheep are treated with respect to their Five Freedoms and also ensures best practices in the management and protection of the land. Through the processing stages, certification ensures that wool from certified farms is properly identified and tracked. The goals of the Responsible Wool Standard are to provide the industry with a tool to recognize the best practices of farmers; ensuring that wool comes from farms with a progressive approach to managing their land, and from sheep that have been treated responsibly. The standard will create an industry benchmark to drive improvements in animal care and land management where needed and provide a robust chain of custody system from farm to final product so that consumers are confident that the wool in the products they choose is truly RWS.”
The Global Recycle Standard makes it clear how important recycle is so that a sustainable production and consumption model can actually grow. The ultimate goal is to reduce resource use (i.e. virgin raw materials, water, energy) and increase quality of recycled products.

The Company is actively involved in the environmental protection. That is why, in 2011, Tessilfibre built a solar plant reaching up to a total generation capacity of 1,8 mw. Part of this green energy is actually used in the production process, with the aim of limiting air pollution and waste of resources.
