We want to leave a clean and healthy environment to the next generation
We have created our Schoeller Re-fabric initiative to quickly and easily buy unused fabrics online because today more than $120 billion worth of excess fabric sits in warehouses around the world. These materials end up burned or buried. We are determined to rescue at least the excess of Schoeller materials, making these high-quality and sustainable products available to you -- at any time, from everywhere. With every meter purchased from schoeller re-fabric, we can save 146 liters of water and 18.4 kg / CO2. Read more here about our initiative Schoeller Re-fabric.
Intelligent textile technologies, such as water and dirt-repelling protection, improve fabric properties, while high-quality textiles have a longer service life and can remain in use for longer, thus helping to preserve the environment and save resources. In manufacturing our products, we always focus on ecological compatibility. We believe that sustainability may by no means conflict with innovation, design, functionality and quality.
bluesign® system partner
Since 2001, Schoeller Textil AG has been producing in accordance with the stipulations of the bluesign® system. The bluesign® system is the solution for the sustainable production of textiles. It excludes environmentally harmful substances from the manufacturing process from the very beginning, lays down guidelines and monitors their observance for environmentally friendly and reliable production. As a result, this ensures that the final textile product meets the most stringent consumer standards worldwide, and that consumers can rest assured they are buying a sustainably-manufactured product.
Schoeller not only produces in accordance with the guidelines of the bluesign® system but, together with other companies, contributed to its founding. Schoeller was the first textile company in the world to receive certification and, in 2008, was the first system partner to receive the bluesign® Award.
The waste water generated through the dyeing and finishing process at Schoeller Textil AG is so minimally contaminated by chemicals or solids in the production process that it can be fed into the normal waste water system. This is treated in exactly the same way as normal waste water from Swiss households.
Ground water is used for cooling processes and returned to the ground water in the same quality through our seepage reservoir.
Schoeller Textil AG invests extensively every year in modern machinery ideally adapted to the production quantities. Thus, over 25 million CHF were invested in the last ten years. Thanks to a close partnership with the environmental authorities, the Amt für Umwelt und Energie, all Swiss laws and regulations in the areas of environment protection, prevention of water pollution, use of inland waterways, energy and plumbing are complied with.
