The certification attests that the fibres come from organic agriculture, as well as guaranteeing traceability all along the supply chain and compliance with environmental and social criteria. The chemical products used in processing of textiles must meet certain requirements on the basis of the toxicological properties.
ISO 14001, the world’s most popular standard for Environmental Management Systems, sets forth the most important requirements for identifying, controlling and monitoring the environmental aspects of any organisation with an environmental policy.

ZDHC - Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals
The goals of the ZDHC programme may be summed up as control of the textiles production chain aimed at progressive, sustainable reduction of use of chemical substances released downstream of the production process. The wastewater from our dyeing plant in Magnonevolo (BI) is tested once a year by a laboratory which issues a report on the results, downloadable through the ZDHC portal (registration required).
