Environmental protection front and centre

Sustainability and the environment play a central role in our company policy. Now, in addition to ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and IATF 16949 certification, we are also certified in accordance with ISO 14001 for our integrated environmental management system.


We are setting the standard for sustainability and environmental protection in the textiles industry with these values. Our latest certification in accordance with ISO 14001 verifies that we are a reliable partner in relation to the constantly increasing expectations for sustainability in companies.

This environmental management system makes it possible for us to take a preventative approach to environmental issues and to replace or augment expensive technologies with integrated production solutions through careful planning. Our environmental management comprises the planning, control, monitoring and improvement of all operational measures for the protection of the environment and for environmentally-oriented operational and employee management. We make a direct, positive contribution to the global challenge of climate change by minimising the negative environmental effects of our textile production with reduced resources, emissions and waste. Headquartered in Tübingen, a city with a Green government, we are meeting our local responsibility for sustainability with this voluntary contribution.
