We make an active contribution towards environmental protection

We are aware of our responsibility to maintain a liveable environ­ment. By subjecting our products to bluesign® certifi­cation, we strive to preserve a safe and healthy environment.

The bluesign® system means adopting a com­prehensive approach, the aim of which is to reduce the environmental impact along the length of the textile supply chain.

To receive a bluesign® certificate, the fibres, chemicals, additives and dyes we use must meet the stringent bluesign® criteria. We are proud of the fact that we have received individual certificates for our shirt fabrics, African clothing damasks and corporate apparel since 2006. Each bluesign® certificate is valid for three years; the Getzner Textil certificates have recently been extended until 2019.

The chart above defines the bluesign® principles. Under each key word, you can see how Geztner is active in this area.

The program is protected as a brand and is implemented in many countries, even outside of Europe. ÖKOPROFIT® is a component that can be used to develop a process-oriented environmental management system.
