A project to protect the environment and health
The sustainable chemicals management system we have adopted comprises a series of initiatives and operational practices.
We have joined the 4sustainability® project, implementing initiatives to comply with the strict requirements of the framework and, in particular, of the PRSL (Product Restricted Substances List) protocol, in accordance with international standards and guidelines.
We also abide by the ZDHC MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List), whose goal is to eliminate toxic and harmful substances from the textile industry.
The Lariotex eco brand identifies the certified products in our catalogue, to help customers choose eco-friendly products.
The fabrics in the eco collection may come from recycled or reclaimed items, or they may be certified in accordance with international industry standards, or they may meet both criteria.
The supply chain and supply chain management
Our colour is blue, as well as green, because we focus on the sustainable aspect in terms of our supply chain.
We are committed to verifying that textile manufacturers comply with international standards as regards product and workplace safety. We also regularly update the mapping of our suppliers in Platform 4s®, which is dedicated to chemical management and the management of technical fabric analysis activities.
We monitor all stages in the purchasing and selling process to ensure that our key values – quality, sustainability, responsibility – are respected.
We have implemented a labelling system for rolls of fabric that uses QR technology, so that we can efficiently and transparently track every step and all information relating to the product, including certifications.
No package at Lariotex is unnecessary, because we choose to only use indispensable packaging in our supply chain.
Our packaging is made with certified and sustainable materials. The cellophane we purchase from our suppliers contains no BHT and we have stopped using plastic bags, using bags made from FSC®-certified paper instead. What’s more, one third of the pallets we use have been reclaimed.
