Zero impact: sustainability and traceability, our guides
Preserving the natural habitat through actions that also guarantee the well-being of people and animals is part of our approach to work and life
Here at Tollegno 1900, we work to maintain a constant balance between production efficiency and respect for the environment, creating the basis for a circular economy that makes sustainability, intelligent recycling and sensible reuse its strong points.
We constantly invest in systems and machinery to keep our impact on the habitat under control and, at the same time, preserve the well-being and health of our human resources.
We choose partners who share our same philosophy of care for the ecosystem, making rigorous and scrupulous choices.
We certify our commitment with certificates that show for real how much the production and processing of our yarns and fabrics comply with precise eco-friendly regulations.
Because respect for the environment means being responsible for our actions and far-sighted in implementing initiatives capable of generating value.
Water and sun, resources that deserve the utmost respect
Being sustainable means being attentive to the natural resources that allow us to live and grow, such as water and energy. To preserve them, we have equipped ourselves not only with a purifier that treats 2,300 – 2,500 cubic meters of water every day, returning it to the Cervo stream in full compliance with the standards of protection of surface water and with an osmotic system, which allows us to reuse 40% of the water, but also with over 17,000 square meters of photovoltaic solar panels. Thanks to this solution, we produce about 2000 kilowatts of energy per hour, but by using 2 Francis turbines we create another 750 by transforming the energy generated by the waterfalls of the stream that flows next to our factory.
Investing to improve: our priority
Being an eco-friendly brand also leads us to constantly allocate funds to purchase new Green label machinery as well as innovate our production processes, in order to avoid any toxic component that may negatively impact nature and people.
We certify our willingness to act for the well-being of our world
We also demonstrate our commitment to preserve the environment, to which we strongly belong, with the attainment of the most important eco-friendly certifications in the textile sector: Textile and Health, Oeko-Tex, RWS (responsible wool standard) and Nativa® Precious Fiber are part of our green passport and our sustainable brand identity.
Traceable to be recognisable
Since 2015 we have been collaborating with the Beaufront estate which, located in Tasmania, is well known not only for its endless pastures, whose biodiversity is promoted by verifying the quality of the land and plants so that their properties meet the highest standards, but also for the commitment to pursue animal welfare. This is confirmed by its RWS and mulesing-free wool certifications: in fact, a team of professional shearers ensures that all phases of wool harvesting are conducted in an ethical manner, guaranteeing a habitat for the sheep characterized by total absence of stress. The innovative Sheep to shop project was born from the partnership with the estate, a personalized service that makes the entire production process traceable and certified, starting from the breeding of the animals, and now also gives the opportunity to visit selected farms for the development of a highly exclusive production.
