Today, for a company operating in the textile sector, the term sustainability no longer concerns only respect for the environment, but it includes many other fundamental aspects: respect for the health of workers and consumers, the rights of people and animals, the rationalization of production processes, the enhancement of recycled material and the investment in innovation and research.
Companies that want to promote sustainability can refer to different types of Certifications, each of which serves to certify the sustainable production of goods and services and the assessment and communication of environmental impacts along the life cycle of a product.
Tessile Fiorentina Company, by choosing to produce sustainable fabrics for a safer and more responsible future in fashion, has obtained three very important certifications in the supply chain:
- Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® (Certifications n. 16CX00061 e 064351.0)
- Global Recycled Standard (GRS) (Certification GRS 2019-118)
- Responsible Wool Standard (RWS)
The Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® is an independent control and certification system for textile products (raw materials, semi-finished products, and finished products) for all types of production through the textile control chain. This certification guarantees high and effective product safety from the consumer’s point of view, by establishing that textile products do not contain or release substances harmful to human health. In-depth product verifications and periodic company audits allow the industry to be made aware of the responsible use of chemicals, in the long term and on a global scale.
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certifies products obtained from recycled materials and manufacturing activities. This certification enhances products made with recycled materials, in compliance with environmental and social criteria extended to all stages of the production chain, trying to reduce the harmful social, environmental and chemical impacts of production.
The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) guarantees the origin of the wool from farms managed in compliance with stringent criteria aimed at the well-being and quality of life of the animal and the territory. It focuses on the progressive management of land and livestock, ensuring that wool is produced responsibly, respecting environmental integrity.
