Sustainability in the textile and clothing industry
“The world has enough for everyone's needs, but not everyone's greed.”
The clothing and textile industry is the second largest environmentally damaging industry in the world. About 20% of wastewater emissions and 10% of carbon dioxide emissions are created as a result of our industrial production. Roughly 7,000 tons of industrial waste are generated in Hungary every year. These numbers justify the fact that in the future, sustainability, the circular economy and thus the protection of the ecosystem will be given a prominent role in the development of strategies. It is gratifying that sustainable clothing (as a new trend) is becoming more and more popular in the world of fashion. Here, sustainability means that instead thing with short life span that are harmful to the environment and health, environmentally friendly, healthy and long-lasting pieces are put on the market.
Sustainability means different things to different people. In our interpretation, sustainability is about incorporating environmental and social aspects into our operations, as well as into the products and services we offer to our customers. For us, we have translated this into five areas: design and development, production processes, waste reduction, partnership and social responsibility.
