Sustainability and Certifications

TEXAL has always placed human capital at the heart of its business model.
Based on this approach, we have embarked on a journey to develop greater sustainable awareness. We believe that only a global approach, embracing environmental, social and economic aspects, can lead to true sustainability in the textile industry.

In line with these principles, we make choices that reduce the environmental impact of our production activities, minimise consumption, design and produce fabrics that, thanks to the raw materials used and the way they are processed, reduce their impact on the environment.

We are committed to eliminating, where technically possible and truly ‘sustainable’, hazardous substances or limiting their concentration and use while waiting for technically viable alternatives, dialoguing and cooperating with raw material suppliers to share and respect social and environmental standards. We are also committed to improving and rationalising existing creative and production processes and to stimulating innovation and research.

We operate with respect for the health of workers and consumers and with full respect for human rights, supporting policies of quality of work, inclusion, qualification of employees, enhancement of skills and dialogue with the community in which we operate.

Energy Savings

In order to reduce the environmental impact of its production activities, reduce energy consumption and improve the quality of the working environment, TEXAL has adopted a lighting solution that combines quality of light, visual comfort and energy efficiency, replacing 410 old-generation fluorescent lights with 384 LED lights.

The new system has reduced energy consumption by 69% – from 399,504 kWh/year to 128,523 kWh/year – with consequent economic savings; in an industrial area of 1600 m2, with a high level of illuminance, consumption is now only 11W/m2.
